Referred pain: Likely is not cardiac in nature. Cardiac pain or at least angina more frequently than not lasts longer and is discomfort like. It accompanies itself with other symptoms such as nausea , sweating, difficulty with breathing. Your condition souds like either gerd or referred pain from the impingement of that nerve. If you don't have any risks factors for CAD then much less likely to be cardiac.
