Cardiac Surgeon Dr. Nisarga's  Response
It is unlikely that you have heart attack. Heart rate of 73 is normal. Do you have any positive family history? Do you have any obvious risk factors like smoking? If they are there it is better to consult a cardiologist.
It is unlikely because you are just 33. Greasy food intake can not bring an acute heart attack.
Don't worry.
