In brief: IMMEDIATE EVAL!!!

chest tightness alone Should be evaluated emergently, particularly if accompanied by fatigue or shortness of breath.
the symptoms are concerning for a life-threatening problems like heart attack or pulmonary embolus ( blood clot in the lung)... you could also have serious problems still not quite as life-threatening as and abnormal heartbeat. if no ER is immediately available, you should call 911

In brief: Yes

Although those symptoms may well be noncardiac, they deserve evaluation in the hospital emergency room where prompt evaluation and proper testing can be obtained.
Anxiety and chronic stress may account for the symptoms but cardiopulmonary pathology must be ruled out first.
