It veryuncomforable and makes me paranoid that im having a heart attack.

Sounds like you have an issue digesting fats.
Did you by some chance have your gall bladder removed? That would do it.
If you have, you'll need to consume digestive enzymes containing lipase, or better yet ox bile before any meal contianing fat. It would help if to also use Betaine HCL as well as this will help digest protein.
These two or similar should help:
Even if you still have your gallbladder, your question does indicate that you have an issue digesting fats, so you might want to try those supplements and see how you feel in a week.
If by some chance you're using antacids, you need to stop as that will cause major digestive issues such as blocking essential mineral digestion (iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, potassium, etc.) allowing for pathogens to enter your digestive tract and will cause much worse issues later on than the symptom relief they temporarily provide.
