Rule out heart: Unclear about risk factors for heart disease such as smoking, age, cholesterol, diabetes but always want to rule out cardiac issues first. Also, how long it lasts is important, as well and what causes the pain. But assuming it is not cardiac, it could be from acid reflux (heartburn), esophageal spasm ("charley horse"), pulmonary (lungs) or chest muscles. Worth getting it checked by a doctor.
