Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. I recommend that you be seen asap. ...Read more

As long as it has been shown that your heart and lungs are normal then I would suggest seeing a chiropractor for treatment. NSAIDs also are helpful. It is also possible that you are having esophageal problems - talk to your FP about that as well. ...Read more
