Thanks for your query.

The commonest cause for chest pain is acid peptic disease. increased acidity in the stomach can lead to pain in the chest resulted by irritation of the esophagus and stomach by the stomach acid.

If chest pain is associated with breathlessness and excessive sweating then cardiac causes may have to be ruled out by getting an ECG.

Do consult your treating doctor get an ECG done, if normal then do consult a Gastroentrologist to get the acid peptic disease treated.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
