what causes pain in the middle of chest?

Middle?: Top to bottom or front to back makes all worry about angina, but it can be a variety of GI issues (reflux, esophagitis, esophageal cancer), bony/arthritic (costochondritis). It usually warrants an ekg and blood tests, and possibly more extensive investigation.
