Maybe: Respiratory infections often cause chest discomfort from coughing, faster breathing, or even myalgia from the virus itself. If you are at increased risk of a heart attack: high bp, cholesterol, diabetes, smoker, family history, or prior history of artery disease, don't assume it's normal. Get checked.

Gastric reflux: Considering you are young and probably have no cardiac problems, u probably are suffering with acid reflux. Try taking over the counter Prilosec x 14 days on empty stomach in am and avoid acid producing foods like tomatoes, onions, peppermint, alcohol, citrus fruits.

Go to the ER: Lynda, if you've been having headache and chest pain all night, you should go to the ER and be evaluated. It may not be serious, but at age 64 there's always the possibility of heart disease or stroke and you don't want to miss anything. Not trying to scare you, just being cautious. In the interim, go ahead and take some Tylenol (acetaminophen) and an aspirin.
