Atypical...: Chest pain due to heart pain has certain features like substernal pain that radiates to the jaw and left arm, pain described as pressure-like, etc.Chest pain that does not have these classic features is called atypical chest pain. Atypical chest pain is less likely to be due to the heart but still could be so testing to rule out the heart may still be indicated, especially if no other source found

Cardiology 56 years experience
Hard to say: There are many causes of chest pain and I am not certain what you mean by side pain. Anyway, heart problems, gastrointestinal problems, musculoskeletal problems, lung problems, to name a few. The exact nature of your pain, a physical examination, and appropriate tests such as an EKG should lead to the answer., .
