We understand your concerns

Your chest pain could be due to acidity. Is the pain at the same place always? Centre of the chest just below the heart region in a pit like place? Ascertain. If that is the case, the pain is due to acidity which presses the diaphragm upwards. Also ascertain if there is heart burn. Also ascertain or make notes about the food intakes you had before the pain. Just don't be panic and make sure you conclude well.

If need be you can definitely consult a general physician for assurance. Be happy
