Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Thank you for your patience.
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
What would you advice i do

No worries, thank you. So only regular use of a drug such as Tina causes cardiac problems. Therefore this is more likely anxiety.

If you are having continuing chest discomfort then I would consider get an ECG though. If you were to do this, only patients can attend hospitals or GPs on their own without family or friends, therefore if you did attend for this, they wouldn't find out why, other than what you say.
