Question
Hi does this sound like angina ? I was power walking in the heat and towards the end I drank some cold water. Few mins later I hurt in my chest and in the back . got a bit scared but I drank more water and i burped a lot. Pain went away. Was feeling fine not tired at all in fact very energetic. Have had gerd and gasţitis since 2010  not on meds now.    History :hashimotos / mild mvp with +1 regurgitation.should i be scared? 38 fem . normal to low bp pulse ok great cholesterol nos no triglykerides (about 40)

Answer
Hi Tonia,
A one time occurrence of chest pain such as you describe (and  In the absence of cardiac risks) is very unlikely to be caused by CAD. You can calculate your cardiac risks here:
