Yes: New chest pain should prompt you to see your doctor. There are a lot of reasons for this that aren't dangerous like heartburn, inflammation of the joints between your ribs, and . Gallstones can sometimes even show up as chest pain. In extremely rare cases, chest pain can be a sign of serious heart or lung disease. Chest pain and shortness of breath should be investigated immediately.
