Call 911: I wouldn't take a chance. Call 911. You should get checked out. Drinking water causing pain is atypical, but chest pain after strenuous exercise is very concerning.

Chest pains: Any chest pains is always a concern. I would consult a physician to make sure that this is not a heart issue.

Rush to doc: One can't tell from the description if this is just a case of heart burns or a heart attack. Rush to your doctor or ER now even though it may just be a case of reflux. In the meanwhile, take an ASA tablet and perhaps try some Pepcid (famotidine) AC.

Need to go to ER: any chest pain with activity is of concern of a cardiac problem. You need to go to the ER and be checked to rule out a heart attack
