I seem to get chest pain right around my heart after eating large meals

I am a 19year old male who plays sports regularly and is not overweight. I seem to get chest pain right around my heart after eating large meals, it feels like sharp little pains. I had a blood test recently for no specific reason but all my fat/cholesterol/electrolyte levels were normal, and i dont know what could be the cause of this. Maybe i have a partially occluded vessel? I would say that i eat okay, not too healthy as i order out about 2-3times per week.

Probably heart burn. Get some antacids like tums. Go see your doctor too to confirm this of course and maybe he can put you on a medicine to prevent heart burn such as prilosec or prevacid. But also recognize what foods in particular trigger an attack and avoiding them will help. For most people triggers are caffeine and fatty or acidic food. Also don't lay down for at least 2 hours after eating. Good luck. Oh and for a quick fix a glass of milk should work too.
