Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Pain on exertion/ higher than normal heart rate / background of hypertension -
You should go to ER immediately.

You need to be investigated for Coronary Artery Disease. Though it is not very typical, it is suggestive. In suspected heart attack, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE – if detected early, an attack may even be aborted / the amount of damage and complications can be reduced remarkably. The most important time is the first few hours. Better be safe than sorry - treated if a problem is found / Happy, if it turns out otherwise

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
