Is inflammation the reason for heart burn during meals?

Every now and then whenever I eat or drink, doesn t matter if it s healthy or not I will get an odd pain in the left side of my heart. It s been happening for weeks now and the pain will last for a couple of seconds and then disappear. I ve been to a local doctor but he was no help and I left feeling as if my questions were unanswered. I know it s not heart burn as the pain is to immense to be heart burn and it doesn t last for long. Would it be inflammation? I m so confused and I need help.
