Chest pain, arm pain, jaw soreness. ECG normal. Weight gain. What is going on?

I get a tight feeling in my chest then pain goes down left arm and finally u get a sore jaw the pain eases within 10 20 mins. It limits e to what I can do only happens when I'm active. I do live in a house that had major mold issues that we hope are fixed. If I visit my daughter for a month thus doesn't happen but as soon as I get home it starts again. I don't go to Dr when it happens because like I said it goes away I have told him what happens they did ECG said I was fine and nothing else I've gained 45lbs because I'm scared to do anything what could be going on should I be going to er even though when I get there I will be fine its 45 mins away

Dear friend, welcome to Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Your symptoms are classic of angina on effort. (that is heart relkated ischaemic pain).
There could be differentials and ECG may be normal in between the attacks or even during attacks.
A normal ECG does not rule out heart problem (coronary artery disease)

You have to undergo extensive evaluation with physical examination, serial ECGs, 2 Decho, lipid profile, stress test, routine labs and an Xray. Ypu may need a cardiology opinion.

Mold infection would not cause intermittent pain and then relief. It could cause progressive breathlessness, cough etc.

Try to chew a baby aspirin or a sorbitrate tablet under the tongue when you get these pains and see if it relieves them sooner. Rest when pain occurs.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck!
