Out of the blue(around 15mins ago), I had a sudden chest pain somewhere under my right breast, and it radiated to the same spot on my back. It lasted a few seconds but I'm still feeling uncomfortable. Is it anything I should be worried about?
A little bit about me:
My last so-called heart checkup was 2 years ago(due to chest pain), doctors did countless ECGs, an echo stress test, blood test, etc and everything turned out normal.
I am on prozac daily for an anxiety disorder.
I'm a 28 year old full time working mom with a 4 years old son and a loving husband.
Should I go for another thorough checkup?
I'm worried; my dad died at 57 from a heart attack due to ischemic heart disease and I've a few relatives who were certified healthy by doctors but died young due to sudden heart attacks.
Thank you very much.

Have you ever had your Gallbladder checked out ?
Sx of gallbladder disease may include:
  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the upper right portion of your abdomen
  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the center of your abdomen, just below your breastbone
  • Back pain between your shoulder blades
  • Pain in your right shoulder

Gallstone pain may last several minutes to a few hours.
