What causes severe pain in the chest?

I'm 28 years old and experiencing chest pain. It's located directly in the middle of my chest. It's a mild pain that was persistent about two hours ago but kind of comes and goes in waves now. I would normally consider it heartburn but I've never had it to this extent or for this length of time. Should I go to the er?
