Could this be Angina?

Hi ! new to this board and have a ? For the last 2 weeks i've been feeling a little discomfort in my chest that goes up my throat and down my left arm , in my back and in my shoulders also . It only happens when I'm doing household chores . My chest also feels very heavy when this happens, leaving me very tired . My family history on my mom's side is full of heart problems . My mom has already had a heart attack , and my grandmother died of an Angina attack in her early 50's . If I rest for a little while it goes away , but comes back , for example doing the laundry or vacuming etc. I'm 38 and female . This is kinda scarey for me , it's already happened twice today . Thanks in Advance

Well , this morning about 4 Am , I woke up with this terrbile pain in my chest , It came and went for about an hour , I finally got to sleep and woke up feeling feeling nauous (SP). Anyway I'm still feeling the same just a general not feeling well , my throat is still tight , like someone got a light sqeeze on it , but no real pain . The pain i felt in my chest on and off this morning was like a spasm type , not crushing . Thanks for the replys ...... so far
