Chest pains while eating?

First off all, I fully intend to call my doctor in the morning about this, but I was hoping to get a little information on this from here. The last couple of nights, I've experienced severe chest pains while I've eaten food. It's happened once before a couple of weeks back, but I didn't think too much of it at the time. Last night, I was able to get myself to relax, and the pain went away. Tonight, however, that method didn't work. The pain didn't go away until I vomited the little bit of food I had actually consumed to that point. I didn't feel the pain spread to my arms, so I'm hoping it wasn't a heart attack. These moments only seem to occur when I'm starting to eat something at nighttime. The meals in question were steak and potatoes that my buddy cooked. Anybody have any idea what's going on with me?

Its very possible it could be heart burn. Have you tried taking tums.. or an antacid? I work in the ER and we actually have quite a few people come in with pains that feel like a heart attack and it just ends up as indigestion. Just a thought. Good luck though. Keep us updated.
