Chest pressure, previous asthma attacks, tickling sensation in chest. Serious symptoms?

I had science and math test today. Right before math test, I started getting quite a bit of pressure in my chest for like almost two hours. It hurt to even twist my body. Didn t really effect my breathing or anything and I have no prior history of chest pressure (I used to have pretty bad asthma but it s gone I think). It went away at lunch after eating some food and now I m at home and the place where my heart is has been ***tickling***!! I mostly just want to know the chances it could be something serious. If there s above a 50% chance that I am going to die, I ll probably tell someone.

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
I think you had asthma in the past which has gone away but just before your exam as you are in tension, your anxiety has provoked it a bit but i am not sure of it whether it was an asthma episode or else. For it you need to undergo some investigations -
1. spirometry and bronchodialator reversibility
2. ECG
3. chest x-ray
I suggest you to consult a pulmonologist and get yourself examined.
Because asthma is diagnosed mainly clinically and confirmed by spirometry finding. I think you got my point.
Thank you.
