Are these symptoms an impending heart attack?

For a few weeks now, I have been totally exhausted. The more sleep I get the more tired I feel. I have cold sweats, pressure and pain in chest towards the left side, shortness of breath, had like acid reflux that woke me up yesterday with pains in my jaw. Fast heart rate, high blood pressure. Not feeling well at all. I was diagnosed with angina and tachycardia, have massive heart attack that took my uncle and my grandpa. What do you think?

will certainly use symptoms are alarming particularly with your strong family history of heart disease. However, what I'm getting from the brief note that you have high blood pressure and fast heart rate certainly that could be the result of an anxiety or it could be a problem with the thyroid gland which is very common in women in your age group. I suggest seated physician to at least run blood tests to rule out any thyroid problem ( thyroid hyperactivity) which could be treated. Also after these tests your physician might require to order blood testing to check on your cholesterol level and may be a CTA to check on your coronary calcium score. Best of luck!
