In brief: Chest tightness

Gastrointestinal issue, reflux a good possibility with symptoms related to meals, does pantozol help? Heart attack unlikely but cardiac issue should be considered.

In brief: Doubtful

Heart attack does not cause 2 weeks of solid discomfort.
Uncommonly other cardiac problems can. More common, especially in women your age, w/o unusual family history would be esophageal issues, such as reflux. No improvement, or ongoing, or recurrent, or other symptoms- further evaluation.
