In brief: Heart esophagus lung

The most serious possibility is angina which is a symptom of myocardial ischemia; that is poor circulation to the heart.
Another possiblity is that the tube that connects ones mouth to the stomach may have a problem. Another possibility is that the lungs are affected by an infection such as preumonia.

In brief: Serious

Need to get it check, could be lots of things including pericarditis, but need to rule out ischemia first( narrowing of artery).
Go see a doctor or go to er.
