> Any ideas what I am experiencing?
It sounds atypical for angina so we would call it atypical chest pain. However, even atypical chest
pains can have their origins from the heart. What risk factors or history do you have that would
lead folks to suspect that you have heart disease?
> I just wanted to get some ideas before I head to doctor.
Seeing your doctor is the best idea.

You are welcome.
