Brief Answer:
Get Chest X-ray, ECG and Echocardiography

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for asking your query on HealthcareMagic.

Considering you have pain only by lifting weights and not at rest, it can be due to muscle pain. However, I cannot be sure and you need a physical examination by your local doctor to confirm the same.
The pain of acidity is not usually pulsating and is usually relieved by anti-acidity medications.
I would suggest you get a chest X-ray, ECG and Echocardiography to rule out heart disease and let me know the reports.
