Dear patient,

Thanks for your health concerns. The most common possibility is that you have actually developed high blood pressure like other of your family members; most of the cases, it is an essential process, meaning that there is no other primary disease causing the blood pressure; at some point, your body loses the ability to keep blood pressure low and prompts the need for medications. Uncontrolled blood pressure can certainly contribute to chest pain symptoms.

Hope this helps, wish you the best health, blessings
