Hi. It's very unlikely that this is related to your heart considering your age

More likely would be indigestion and gastric acid reflux and maybe a pinched nerve in your neck

That said, you should see a doctor right away for an evaluation

Let me know if you need more information please Maria

I would tend to disagree.

We can't rule out cardiac issues just by your age.

I would ABSOLUTELY get this checked right away

Go to ER if needed
