20 year old with chest pain. What could be the reason ?

I am 20 years old 170 pounds 6 3 Don t eat as much as i would like too, I smoke cigarettes, i drink alcohol in moderation, loads of coffee due to being a security guard I work 4 shifts wed thurs Night shift, Weekends sat sun day shift so i constantly have to transition I have chest pain right over my heart right now, my left arm also feels very weird Is this fatigue, too much coffee? to much smoking...? What steps do i take, this feeling has been around for the last 3 days, on and off. Today it has been ongoing for the last 2 hours, the most its ever lasted so far also can i walk into a hospital complaining of heart pains and get an EKG? Oh, and my left eye recently started twitching randomly, I was told it is either a calcium def or fatigue...which is it and is it connected with the above problem? I appreciate any answers...as short or as long. Thank you another thing i wanted to add, I am an excessive sweater..But only on my hands and feet these last 3 days I only sweat during this chest episode, just another weird thing..

Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

The above symptoms suggestive of Oesophagitis (inflammation of esophagus) ... that pain is felt as chest pain... excess of coffee& smoking and drinking will lead gastritis and esophagitis... First you must stop smoking& drinking.. avoid too much of coffee.. avoid spicy foods, good sleep, will reduce the symptoms.. twitch of left eyes is due to calcium deficiency... calcium tablets may be helpful..
