    Well an ECG would show if you was having a heart attack for sure also a blood test would show a certain enzyme your heart releases when having a heart attack. this does not neccessarily rule out the likes of heart disease, angina etc.

    Like said a holster for 7 days may show more but when do you get this feeling? Was you busy, doing something or sitting down?

    Do you suffer anxiety?

    Do you still have the pain?

    if you are seriosuly concerned you can get a second opinion, maybe ask for a cardiologist appointment or go ER where they will run further tests.
