Worried, no but...: Concerned, yes. I'd get looked at by your doctor, preferably. Go to er only if symptoms worsen. Once your doctor examines you and determines it is not cardiac, then follow their advice for stress management, coping mechanisms, etc. Stress is a consideration but only after more dangerous stuff is ruled out. That can only be done by the help of your doctor.
