What Causes Mild Pain In The Heart Area?

For the last few weeks, I've noticed a mild pain in the heart area. The pain last just a few seconds. Then maybe 30 minutes later I will once again experience this pain. I'm a 65 yr old woman, fairly healthy and active. I do take medicine for high blood pressure.

Hi

Thanks for posting your query.

Pain in the heart area , at your age has to be taken seriously . It could be due to

1. Heart problem.
2. Acidity.
3. Indigestion.
4.Muscular pain.

6. Nerve problem.

I need to know the character of pain, whether it is burning , pricking or squeezing in nature.
