Chest pain: Chest can be for various reasons. Burning chest pain is more often associated with a GI problem and commonly reflux. However, burning chest pain can be associated with cardiac issues. People under 40 are less likely to have cardiac problems, but family history, risk factors and unfortunately for those who use cocaine, meth etc can have significant early vascular problems.
