What causes pain in upper chest and jaw?
chest pain requires investigation
any kind of chest pain at your age requires investigation to exclude heart disease. If the pain occurred suddenly (that is without being involved in physical activities), it could be unstable angina, which is almost as significant as a heart attack. Other signs or symptoms or indications of heart related pain may include nausea, cold sweats, palpitations and a history of smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol, sedentary lifestyle, etc.
In cases like yours an electrocardiogram is the first thing you should do. Depending on the findings more tests will be required.
