Hi,
Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

It seems that you had a simple case of heart burn, it is very easy to confuse with heart pain. Unless you start having the heart burns frequently and more intensely there is nothing to worry about.

I hope this answered your question.
