In brief: Chest pain

Chest pain when you really drill it down, many patients will say it's really tightness.
The reasons can be several. The heart is only one. Reflux can be the cause. Asthma that is undiagnosed can be another. Heart rhythm abnormalities, stress, some bruising of the lung lining etc. Context is important in discussing chest "pain". You need a thorough exam and review of symptoms with your md to know.
