I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today.

As the feeling of tightness is for whole day without any associated symptoms - I would not think of cardiac cause. Possibility of anxiety is most likely the culprit. Try anti anxiety medicines. Yoga, meditation help too. Have balanced diet, adequate fluid. Avoid alcohol and smoking.

I would also get few investigations like EKG/ Chest x ray/ blood tests to get peace of mind.

Wish you well.
