Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Chest pain of any sort needs a proper evaluation, in order to rule out any underlying cardiac problem. So, I would suggest that you see a doctor for a proper physical examination and further investigations, like ECG, etc.

You have also mentioned that you are facing stressful situations and are feeling depressed. So, I would also advise you to report this to your doctor so that, appropriate treatment can be initiated. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy, which can help you overcome your depression.

Needless to say, you also have to stop smoking, since it can lead to a variety of adverse health consequences, including cardiac complications.

Wish you all the best.
