Detailed Answer:
Dear friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

See a doctor
You have not said of any characteristics of the pain – pain from the heart is oppressing, in central chest (and left), worse on effort, relieved by rest, may radiate to shoulders and arms, associated with sweating and so on.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is not likely. Yet, in suspected heart problem, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE – if detected early, an attack may even be aborted / the amount of damage and complications can be reduced remarkably. The most important time is the first few hours. You should see your doctor as soon as possible...
Better be safe than sorry - treated if a problem is found / Happy, if it turns out otherwise
See a doctor / Have examination, ECG & blood tests to exclude any thing important.

Take care
Good luck
