Unless you have a heart condition, high blood pressure or have ingested or inhaled something you shouldn't have, the chances of you having a heart attack are too tiny to even consider. You could have pulled a muscle, have something pressing on a nerve or just slept funny on your left side. No, you shouldn't sit and wait for the chest pain (you could be waiting 80 years!). Try taking a shower (it could loosen up those muscles), take a few deep breaths (relax) and ask your parents for some Motrin or Advil. You should be fine in no time!

there is nothing serious in complain.but apart from this if you have any other complain like sweating, BP, numbness in extremies then you have to visit your nearest cardiologist I advice you to visit regularly once in week for your routine check up.
there is much less chance of getting heart attack for a 14 year child.
