Hi sifat
chest pain can have multiple reason. I wish you must have told about the site duration intensity of pain.

squeezing and chest tightness sort of feeling with pain at the left shoulder, arms, neck, jaw can be anginal this case urgent ecg and cardiac enzyme testing has to be done.

a localized pain which increases on deep inspiration, coughing, sneezing etc can be pleuritic pain which needs antibiotic therapy.

pain at anterior chest at costochondral junction may be due to costochondritis.

sometimes acid reflux also causes substernal burning sensation.

other causes can be post traumatic pain.

in yours case, your age doesn't permit for anginal pain until and unless there is some underlying cardiac structural abnormality.

better meet your physician, get examined thoroughly......

the commonest cause of this kind of pain in an age group such as yours is dyspepsia also referred to commonly as a gas problem. You need to be careful with your diet- less spicy food/aerated drinks/ oily food and plenty of water
