You have not mentioned your age. Any way, chest pain could be due to variety of reasons including hyperacidity, myalgia , hiatus etc. If antacids do not relieve your pain, you need to consult your doctor , he will help you to take away the fear in your mind. Dont be apprehensive, a simple visit to your doctor will solve all your fears.
Best luck.

Thanks for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

Chest pain is not only because of Heart attack. There are many reason for chest pain. Like Hyper acidity, Muscle cramps, Irritable bowel syndrome, Primary biliary cirrhosis, Osteoporosis, Pulmonary hypertension, Myocardial infraction(heart attack) etc. Before coming to final diagnosis I would like to know some information's. Like what is your age, sex, food habits, do you smoke or drink alcohol,have diabetes or hyper tension or any other diseases. Take antacids if symptoms not re-leaved do visit your physician and follow the advice.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available for your fallow up queries, if any.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
