Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your history, usually chest congestion may be concerned with respiratory problems like URTI. Let me know whether do you have fever, cold, breathing difficulties? If you have abnormal ECG, then consult with cardiologist at ER. Take care.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale
