Chest pain in a guy in his early 20's can be an emergency, depending on various details. Often, the ER doctor needs to evaluate. The doctor evaluates for asthma, heart problem, pneumothorax (collapsed lung), myocarditis, etc... If it turns out to be rib cartilage pains (costochondritis) or heartburn (gastric reflux), that can be treated too. A heart attack would be ultra rare at college age.
