Thank you for your question.

What is your age and gender?

Have you been seen for this?

Any EKG done recently?

Please let me know.

Hi, I'm Dr Chaithanya experienced Physician attending you now.

Chest tightness can be due to many reasons. A mere anxiety or a heart attack.

You heart rate is high, but BP is not so abnormal.

If the chest tightness is more, and you have it from long time, I don't think it is good to wait. Please go to ER, so that they do an EKG and rule out heart stroke.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask if any further questions. If done for now, please leave a positive rating

I am a double board certified US doctor.

BP has not relationship to angina.

And can start rising or dropping with anactual heart attack.

The degree of pain is not you don't go to the ER only if the pain is increasing.

Any new pain like this must be evaluated.

Since we know nothing about you, that will be the case regardless.

Not an option, evaluation now.

I am a double board certified US doctor.
