    Hi Cathy...Chest tightness and discomfort..Quite vague terms. Not sure this forum is where you should be rather than A&E.. Don't mean to alarm you but if it were me I'd be seeking proper medical advice. Though I'm sure you know yourself well and I certainly don't, perhaps safe should win over sorry and you should get it checked out. Quickly.

                     Hope it's no more than you think.

    Please go and see your doctor at once, Chest tightness can mean so many things, some harmless, some not. To be on the safe side see your GP. x
