You had what is known as angina pectoris ( coronary artery diseases). This could if not properly managed lead to myocardial infarction. The briefness and severity makes it easier to rule out the heart attack.
You will need to consult a cardiologist for further evaluation and management. Also measures to prevent future attacks.

Best regards
