Indigestion /heart attack !

Today i was at work ( i work in ER)

I had been having an achy chest pain for about three days and today in work it got worse, so one of my Doctor collegues made me have some blood work and a Top blood which dtects possible heart attacks ! then i had an ECG done and then another one to make sure it was similiar to first one which was ok.
My trop came back ok, my blood work was ok and the ecgs were fine. They think it was a bad case of indigestion. They checked because i have had AF in the past and my Father had a bypass quite young.

I just wanted to say it wa sscary and felt like i was having a heart attack, although ive never had one ! it mimicked a heart attack even sending pain up into my jaw !

But the Docs were pretty sure it was nothing to do with my heart, so thats a relief. But its spurned me on to get my cholesterol lower and lose some weight.
