    Hello A, there are 3 things that I think can cause the heavy weight on chest feeling. The most common one is heart struggling to get blood, a blocked artery for instance. Next is lungs, and most common one here is asthma. 3rd is a symptom of anxiety. 

    I am hoping your medical guys checked heart blood flow properly. If it gets bad, like an elephant sitting on your chest call 999 ambulance as this can get serious very quickly. Next is asthma which has a simple air flow test to see if you are ok. The chemist can help you with that. Once you have these understood, it leaves anxiety as possible cause. You are right to look into it. I hope you feel better soon. David.

    Hi M and A, funny you should say that about no chest pain - when my dad was 70 or so he had a check up and they found damage to his heart from a heart attack and didn't even know it happened. I have another friend about 40 who had the elephant on his chest feeling one morning about 2am and called ambulance and 'died' on the way to hospital. Thankfully they revived him and a few bypasses later he is in good health. Best wishes, David.
