Squeezing almost stinging pain, BP b/p in 170s-- angina or possibly a heart attack?

Adenosine works but not use as out patient as far as I know...I've never been to this board before; a few hours ago I had a squeezing almost stinging pain in my left clavicular region. It lasted around 20 seconds, my b/p shot up to the 170's (checked it) I became almost weak and very very nervous and am still riddled with anxiety from it.

Was this a blast of angina or possibly a heart attack? I didn't go to the doctor or the ER because I'm unemployed and the local hospital charges full price to the poor! Yep! Not a good reason, if it happens again I'm going.

I have a very high cholesterol (alot of the "good" stuff, last level was 92), HTN but I take meds and watch it; no smoke, no drink, no drugs, 50+ lady. You all sound very experienced with this issue- please give me some guidance, I'm scared!
