Whatever it was scared you, which most likely means it was a new pain you have never experienced. Any new pain in the chest should be examined by a doctor. Better safe than sorry. When it comes to your heart don't take chances

I agree you need to see your doctor and get at the minimum a 12 lead EKG, labs done, and preferably a stress test, stress echo, or myocardial perfusion test. These sound like classic MI/angina symptoms, especially when coupled with exercise and high BP!

My suggestion is that you see your doctor. There are many symtoms that women present. This could be a warning. If you don't have a cardiologist you may want to look for a good one. I had a heart attack in 2007 and I was already seeing my cardiologist. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women. Listen to your body. The first hour of a heart attack is the most important. Don't ever be embarrassed to go to the ER. They are professionals and they know what to look for.

Thank you for the great advice. I will be sure and go next time this happens. Hopefully it never will. Lost 1 more lb this week. I'm feeling much better and the lose of another pound helps give me some motivation to keep on track safely.
Had a scare yesterday. Was walking with weight lose group and only made it half way when I stated hurting in my chest. I felt like someone was pressing bricks on my chest. Once I went in building and sit down and cooled off, it preceeded to subside. They took my BP and it was high to begin with. They continued to check it and it also returned to normal. My sugar was also tested and it was 90. I'm not sure what a heart attack feels like they say it feels different for women. I would like someone to relate me some informationabout if I was right to be worried. Should I have went to ER. I'm feeling better today, but I would like to hear from you on what I should have done. Thanks for the support.
