Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having chest pain for about 8 hours now does not seem to be due to heart disease.

The causes of non cardiac chest pain are: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and esophageal spasm,musculoskeletal problems, especially fibromyositis (muscle inflammation) or it can be due to anxiety and panic attacks.

Angina can be present with any of the following symptoms:

-Pain and discomfort in your chest. This pain can feel dull, heavy, tight or severe.
-Pain and discomfort that may spread to your jaw, neck, arms, back or stomach.
-Lightheadedness
-Weakness
-Dizziness
-Palpitations, sweating, feeling sick or shortness of breath.
-An angina pain does not usually last long. It will usually ease within 10 minutes when you rest.

None of your symptoms match for angina/heart disease.

So this seems most likely to be non-cardiac cause.

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.
