Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Pain in the chest , that too on left side in heart , is a cause of concern.
As pain is also in back and on right side , so reason may be due to,
Tension,
anxiety ,
esophagitis ( hyper acidity i.e. gastritis),
Of course may be due to heart.
You haven't mentioned the age and sex?
Male around 40 years are more prone to heart disease, while female are more prone after 60 years.
Get in ECHO heart and blood test .
Consult your treating doctor and get in complete tests.
Good luck.
