Needs Evaluation!: At your age there are a number of possibilities like atypical heart pain or an aneurysm of the aorta dissecting and bursting. These are serious problems. On the other hand, it could just be "gas". The first possibilities are fatal and need to be excluded as possibilities so you need to be seen asap.
