Chest & stomach discomfort for the past week

I’m 26, female. Since last week I’ve been experiencing chest tightness / numb / pain. I went to hospital and ER, both time they told me it’s gastric problem. I almost finish my meds but since yesterday I’m still experiencing chest pain (it keep moving upward, now at top left). When I’m awake, I start feeling it pulling once in a while. My father recently passed away due to heart attack, I’m super concern what is happening to me. I’m slowing losing my appetize and dizziness has increased, I don’t know if it’s really my body or just mood that causing it. I’m also lost at what should I do, where should I go. Please help advise. thank you!!
