Hi
One of the reasons can be acid reflux.
But recurrent pain radiating to the chest should be evaluated.
It can be related to the cardiac problems, or esophageal induced coronary vasospasm, or related to gastritis or pancreatitis.
If the pain is the same please see the cardiologist, an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with ultrasound abdomen,
Take care
