The Argentine was removed after barely 40 minutes and sought further examination as a precautionary measure.
Sergio Aguero was taken to hospital after complaining of dizziness during the first half of Barcelona's 1-1 draw with Alaves on Saturday, interim head coach Sergi Barjuan confirmed.
The Argentine was absent for the first two months of the season as he recovered from a nagging calf injury, finally making his club debut in mid-October against Valencia.
But he was in clear discomfort on the pitch before coming off late in the first half, later leaving the stadium as a precautionary measure.
Almost 40 minutes were on the clock at Camp Nou when Aguero pulled up in discomfort.
The forward was left hurt by a clash in the area and appeared to have trouble breathing, pointing to his chest as he doubled over.
After an assessment from the Barca medical team, he left the game almost in tears, with Philippe Coutinho chosen to replace him in the Catalans' line-up.
The Argentine left Camp Nou in an ambulance, following medical protocol in such cases.
In the second half he was joined on the sidelines by Gerard Pique, who limped off to be replaced by Clement Lenglet with just over 20 minutes still to play.
The club later confirmed that he had undergone a cardiac exam after complaining of discomfort in his chest.
