Hi @jamespang83 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I must urge you to seek medical attention right away and call your doctors office that performed the procedures. That is the number one warning sign to call your physician if you have chest tightness and pain after an endoscopy. It may just be a little discomfort, but please take care of yourself and don't wait to have them check it out.

Have you had any other symptoms besides chest discomfort?
