thank u for ur enquery
single episode of chest tightness for 25 minutes signify nothing
though in asthma there is chest tightness as well as in other obstructive lung diseases but from this single symptoms nothing can be said specifically
u also had tingling on ur fingers
this is also a non-specific symptoms
i think u may have anxiety neurosis
take a trial of alprazolam 0.5 mg and pantoprazole 40 mg for 2-3 wks
then follow up ur symptoms
if persists then think otherwise
btw ur smoking history is also important here
ur blood sugar status need also be taken into account
if symptoms persists after 3 wk u should then undergo following tests-
looking for any abnormality
other test if required to be decided latter on
thank u
need not to worry
will get well soon
