Go to ER: Though low probability, the first thing you want to have ruled out is a major cardiac of vascular problem that could be life threatening. If you haven't been seen by a doctor yet you should go right to a good er and have them take a history, do a physical exam, and order appropriate tests. The type of pain you describe is a cardiac or major vascular problem until proven otherwise.
