I am 63 years old and woke up in the night with discomfort in my chest, throat (as in swallowing) and onset of headache, even my teeth ached. This morning I have residual headache and have vague other symptoms. I have woken before with heartburn, but this was different. I have had similar a couple years back and was checked out with no obvious heart problems.
