See your doctor : Your symptoms are quite suspicious of ischemic heart disease. I would suggest that you see a Cardiologist and also get an ECG done to get a diagnosis

Sounds serious...: Chest pressure, chest pain, or trouble breathing are signs that she should talk with her doctor right away or go to the ER. In adults, chest pain can be a heart problem. She should not drive herself (safer by ambulance). If it turns out not to be myocarditis, heart attack symptoms, or anxiety attack symptoms, the ER will also have checked for problems such as a collapsed lung or a pneumonia.
