In brief: Chest

Chest pain can mean many different things.
Other factors to take into consideration are age, history of high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, family history etc. Cardiac issues need to be ruled out. Also muscle pain or even acid reflux can account for your symptoms. The bottom line is to be evaluated bu your doctor asap for a complete exam and testing. Good luck.
