Over the last few weeks I've been feeling a dull pain in my heart area, tightness in throat. Serious or not?

47  year old female.  I quit smoking a year ago.  Been on bp and cholesterol meds for a few months.

Dull ache in heart area, hot flashes, heart palpatations, tightness in throat...just enough to make me cough a little.

The most concerning possibility is called coronary artery atherosclerosis that causes angina. Also, you have high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. These are risk factors for the development of coronary artery atherosclerosis. You need to make an appointment with a cardiologist and have your heart examined.

Hello, your situation is serious. It might be coronary heart disease, which is related to fatigue, arteriosclerosis, irregular eating habits and living habits. Also, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and smoking are risk factors of coronary heart disease. It is recommended to do ECG, UCG, myocardial enzymes, and troponin to confirm the condition. Recently, you need to take a good rest, eat a light diet, quit smoking and drinking, and see your doctor regularly.
