Brief Answer:
Hi Suzanne, the kind of chest pain you are describing

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX, the kind of chest pain you are describing can be muscular (pull or strain), due to oesophagitis, or a lung problem. Apply a pain balm to the painful sites and take a good over the counter medicine for acidity. If this does not work, do see your primary care Physician. Regards
