In brief: Severe CP
Chest pain that is severe, lasting more than 30 min is considered an emergency needing you to seek immediate medical attention.
It could be an heart attack, pulmonary embolism or aneurysm, all life threatening conditions which need to be ruled out before considering less severe causes.
