thank u for ur enquery
squeezing chest pain which is recurrent disturbing ur life is a matter of concern.
one qn needed to be answered this pain occuring for the first time????????
you need to consult doctor
u need to have an urgent ECG.... if it is normal then ofcourse the stress test...which can reveal an underlying ischemic heart disease...and with the ECG u also have to go for an chest x-ray (PA view).
except these i also advice u also to go for routine blood investigations along with the lipid profile
sometimes GERD may cause some type of chest pain ...take pantoprazole 40 mg daily for 2 wks.

u do consult ur doctors and will undergo those investigations...these will releive ur anxiety and if there is something it ll be detected
thank u

The squeezing pain in chest for few minutes and that too in the morning time always give suspicion of heart pain and could be MI.
You must definitely go to the doctor and get the cardiac clearance from him.
