Chest pain, heart burn, sore neck and shortness of breath. Family history of heart problems. Need to be worried?

I have been experiencing chest pain all afternoon, it feels like it maybe heartburn but it wont go away. i have a sore neck too, I dont have shortness of breath although I feel tired and emotional. I eat very healthy, What I've eaten today is lemon water, fruit smoothy, greentea, coffee & a cookie, a handful of almonds and a protein shake and an apple. I am 49 and wiegh approx 130lbs. My cholesterol is excellent but I have a history of heart issues in my family. One brother had 3 stints put in at age 51 and I have 2 other brothers who have stints and 1 brother who has had a triple by-pass. Just so you have some history.

Dear Sir
Thanks for writing to us.
if you have chest pain, you must see your doctor. Presence or absence of risk factors, do not in any way govern the probability of acute cardiac event (sudden onset heart problem) in a given individual at a given time.
since you have symptoms, with such a profile, which can not be straightaway labelled as NON-CARDIAC, you must see your doctor.
