In brief: Different causes

Sharp chest pains can be caused by musculoskeletal scenarios, Reflux disease, gastritis, even gall stones can give it.
In addition depending on when, how, duration of chest pain is relevant also. Important things would be to have a thorough history and physical exam to make sure this is not something to worry like CAD, Aneurysms, for example
