See if that's: related to your diet or what you eat? If so, it may have something to do with heartburn like symptoms. See your doctor to get relief. Time to get relief as s/he must examine you physically before recommending OTC or Rx meds. Also, to rule out other conditions that may have nothing to do with your diet, and may be neurological or musculoskeletal. This requires a doctor to help you! Good luck!

Anxiety: Chest pain from anxiety is usually located over the heart and described as sharp pain. The pain usually increases when you breathe, but it doesn’t tend to continue more than a few minutes. If concerned, see your pcp for further investigation to rule out cardiovascular involvement.
