Thanks for writing in.
In your situation, angina has to be ruled out first, due to coronary artery disease. You may consult a cardiologist and get ECG and echocardiography tests done. If any warning signs of heart problem are seen, you may have to get a coronary angiography done.
Sometimes chest pain as described by you may occur due to esophagitis and gastritis.

Hope this helps.
