Need more information
After going through your medical details I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that chest discomfort can be because of many reasons like indigestion, gastric reflux or anxiety, but can be related some underlying heart disease which may require further evaluation.
Before giving my opinion I would like to know about your medical history if you have any medical illness and your medication if are taking any. Also let me know about your symptoms if you are feeling like palpitations also.
Kindly revert back with required information so that I can assist you.

I do have high blood pressure and am currently taking Hyzaar for that. I am also taking Lipitor for high cholesterol and Synthroid for my thyroid. I don't have any palpitations and feel good otherwise. I am just concerned because both my parents passed away from heart attacks, but they both smoked cigarettes heavily and I don't touch them.
Thanks for the feedback.
Now taking into consideration all the details which ypu have provided I would like to suggest you to kindly get a basic cardiac check up done which includes
3. Stress Test
These tests will help assure that there is no underlying cardiac issues. This is important because both of your parents had coronary artery disease.
I hope this information will guide you properly.
