Possibly heartburn: You have to be more specific as to when you experience the pains, but heartburn (i.e. Reflux) is possible. Based on your age, it is unlikely that the symptoms are cardiac in nature. The pains could also be musculoskeletal. Check with your pcp, as all chest pains should be evaluated.

At your age it: is most likely musculoskeletal and not serious but if it persists it would be reasonable to get it checked out by a health care provider.
