Chest pain, high pulse rate on running, weight gain. Taking anti-anxiety medication, quit smoking. Treatment?

i used to be able to run miles at a time, but recently i get chest pains and my heart beats much much faster then it used to when i would run. we thought it was anxiety but after my doctor perscribed me anxiety medicine it still doesnt help. i even quit smoking in hope that it would help but it has done nothing. Are there a few things it could be im gaining weight every week and i just want to be able to run again and not worry about my heart

Internal Medicine Specialist 's  Response
You have been able to run miles earlier with recent complaints of chest pain and fast beating heart which you didnot get relief after taking anxiety medicine with an addition of gaining weight. So you need to check for High Blood Pressure and exclude Diabetes Mellitus as you have gaining weight even with regular exercise(running). If excluded Check you Lipid Profile and ECG for any problems of Heart and even TMT to exclude Coronary Artery Disease.

you need a complete cardiovascular check up including an echo and TMT test to rule out CAD.
