Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having tightness in whole chest area for 10 minutes can be due to angina.It occurs when heart is not getting enough blood and oxygen.It is most often caused by blockages in the arteries that supply blood to your heart.Angina may feel like pressure or squeezing in your chest.Stable angina isn't a heart attack, but it makes a heart attack more likely in the future.

All types of chest pressure or chest pain should be checked by the doctor to rule out any heart disease. You need following tests:

-Electrocardiogram(EKG)
-Stress EKG,
-Blood tests
-Holter monitoring,
So my best advise for you is to please make an early appointment with your doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
