Why am I feeling lightheaded and tightness in the chest?

My husband has been complaining of tightness in the chest which actually hurts if he presses on it and he gets lightheaded. If he then eats, it gets better. This has happened on 3 occassions. He has had a physical and was even tested for heart damage/ heart attack this past Saturday at the ER and nothing comes up. What could it be?

Welcome to HCM.
As he got cardiac tests done and came out normal then nothing to worry.
This might be due to gastritis or hyper acidity.
Give him some antacid like rantac or ocid tablet and he will be alright.
Avoid fried, chillies and junk food.
Avoid stress.
Ok and bye.
