    billh99 responded:
    Chest pain can be caused by heart conditions, lung problems, muscular or bones, gastric reflux among others.

    There is no way to diagnose this from the internet.

    A rule of thumb that any symptoms that are concerning you you need to get them checked out by a medical professional.
