What causes pain in the left side of the chest?

I am 24 male. Having some aching in my upper left part of my chest. I excersise regularly - about 4 times a week for at least 45 minutes. My average resting heart rate is 71 bmp. I have 54HDL, 154LDL, 230 Triglycerides. BP is 130/71. What could this pain be? No Recent trauma. I do suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder which is being treated by Lexapro with good results for 6 months. Thoughts?
