Intermittent chest pain on the lower center, pain quickly intensifies than dissipates. Any ideas?

For two days now I ve had on and off chest pains in the lower center of the chest. The pain lasts for about 20 seconds at a time, and could occur every 2-3 minutes for a couple hours. This has been on and off. The pain will intensify quickly, then slowly dissipate. Also when each is over, sometimes is feels like growling . Any ideas? Im an 18 year old male.

We understand your concerns

I went through your problem description. You should not worry unnecessarily. Chest pain below the rib center joint might be due to acidity or muscular cramp. You are just 18 and you should not have any heart problem. Acid reflux presses the diaphragm upwards and there might be pain around the area.

For confirmation, please visit a general physician.
Hope this clarifies your doubt. Available for further clarification.
Good luck.
