Is there any relation between chest pains and high blood pressure?

I have had high blood pressure in the past and have been on medicaton for it but now am not as it has been ok for a yr or so. I keep getting sharp pains in my chest, next to my breast. sometimes its really bad pains sometimes like a dull ache. It only lasts ten mins or so then goes but sometimes i get it while laying down at night. I dont think its indegestion or heartburn . It also feels quite tight when i breath while having this pain, any ideas?

I am nearly 29 weeks pregnant. After a few weeks of really bad heartburn, i seem to be able to eat most things. However, the past few days it's like my throat closes up after eating and it's like the food doesn't go down (regardless of the type of food) and i feel like i'm about to sneeze, but it won't come out. Yesterday, i threw up, but it wasn't uncomfortable and i didn't have any signs of an upset stomach. Is this the baby kicking in the wrong place? or could it be something else?

My tubes have been tied for 3 1/2 years. Since then my periods have been more regular then ever, until April. My last normal period was March 2nd. I then had a two day period starting April 18. I have not yet had a period since. I have not had a period for 2 months and six days. I have had cramping, sore breasts occasionally, shooting pain that shoots down my vagina. A lot of bloating, heartburn, and it feels like something is stuck underneath my right rib when it sit down or lay different ways. I m starting to get freaked out. Do you have any suggestions?
