UNLIKELY HEART ATTAC: It is more likely to be gastroesophageal refluxwith or withot esophagitis.But there is possibility of chest pain related to heart, or pulmonary cause, or costochondritis
you need to have it checked asap by your doctor with exam and ekg, and may or may not need endoscopy or a trial of acid suppression therapy depending on what your doctor feels it can be.
