Today I experienced tightness in throat radiating into lower jaw and a feeling of tiredness. I've had this before
but it seem to last longer (an hour this time). No sob or n/v just a did not feel well. Should I be concerned?

Thanks for consulting us.
Yes, you should not neglect it as this could be a sign of Angina.
You should at least go for an ECG ( Electro Cardio Gram) & show it to your Cardiologist. An Exercise Tolerance test is also likely to be beneficial by providing useful information in your case. Your medical history also necessitate some action. Hope this answers your concerns. Please write back if you want to discuss this further.
Wishing you good health.
Best Regards.
