Probably nothing: Chest pain whether mild or severe needs to be investigated. It could be musculoskeletal in origin or acid reflux, esophageal spasms, pneumonia, gall bladder disease etc. Please go to your doctor if pain not relieved.

Anything: Could be a problem with skin, nerves, muscle, shoulder, lung, heart, or stomach. See your doctor for a more thorough history, physical exam and further evaluation.
