What must be done for chest pain ?

My mother suffers from chest pain , may be from the heart for a very long time now. This happens when she is depressed or sad and angry. This dissapears when she rest for a while after the anger or depression . Also, when she exerts physical effort like going u the stairs going to the fourth floor. She takes a beta-blocker whenever she fells pain (medicines ending in olol ).Someimes, the pain may last for a week then dissapears. Her last doctor visit was about 8 years ago. She is a stubborn kind of person who seems to be very busy for that. She is 49 years old, working in our store. Her is moderate, not so heavy. What must be done for this? What can I do o make her subject herself to examination? Could this develop in sudden Myocardial Infarction and sudden death?

Hi. About a year ago i started having occasional chest pain. Sometimes on the right side and sometimes on the left. I went to the doctor and I was told that it was nothing to worry about. In the past year I have had this pain come and go but in the past few weeks more often than not I have had atleast a small amount of tightness in my chest, mostly on the left side. When the pain is at its worst breathing in deeply increases the pain. Also while the pain is bad extending out my left arm to grab something can cause a sharp increase in pain momentarily. I have noticed that the pain is typically more intense after smoking marijuana. Do you have any ideas what this could be?

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)
