In brief: Long list

Chest pain is something worth seeing a doctor in person about.
Your lungs, your heart, your blood vessels, and your esophagus are the major sources of pain syndromes in your chest, as well as the muscles, bones, and other tissues that make up your chest wall. At 23, the chances of having one of the serious lifethreatening causes of chest pain are low, but you should be evaluated.

In brief: See MD

Could be GERD, panic attack, lung disease, heart disease or costochondritis ( inflammation of the rib cage).
With GERD you should have symptoms of heartburn & costrochondritis hurts to the touch. As always, if you have chest pain, you should see a physician.
