Hello and welcome
Chest pain associated with changes in EKG is suggestive of Coronary artery disease. You need to immediately consult your cardiologist for that and if needed go for coronary angiography to find out any block in coronaries. I would like to know that value of CPKMB and TROP T. These are suggestive of recent changes.
In my opinion do not waist time and consult your cardiologist as soon as possible. Also check for other risk factors like diabetic, hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity and stress,
