Hello. : Hello. Chest pain and tightness can occur as a physiologic response to anxiety. However with your strong family history, it would be worth it to have a comprehensive evaluation to include an ekg and blood work, if you haven't done so. Take care.

Vegan diet: With that family history it would be wide to consider vegan diet(no animal products) there is good evidence that this can reverse heart disease for many people, even just reduction in animal products can help. best Wishes
