Brief Answer:
Reports are not suggestive of heart disease but needs to evaluate more

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through the reports, but these are not showing any changes suggestive of heart disease.
I need to know more about the symptoms. Does this pain was sudden in onset, associated any sweating, uneasiness etc and was ecg done during chest pain? Does there any neck pain, tingling or numbness in hands? This is for cervical cause.
Here, I ll keep the possibility of reflux disease and spine cause as a reason for pain. But, I think considering her age and risk factors, we should evaluate her more for cardiac cause. She should undergo stress thallium if available and if not available, then CT coronary angiography can also be done.
Till then she should avoid fatty, oily and spicy diet. Have some walk after having food instead of taking rest. Have multiple small meals instead of heavy meals.
She should get prescribed tab Pan DSR 40 mg or esomiprazole domperidone combination beforebreakfast once a day for 2 weeks.
Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
