In brief: Chest pain

Chest pain can be from heart disease , inflamation of the lining of the lungs (pleurisy) caused by infection (pneumonia, etc).
Pain may also originate from the joints between the breast-bone and ribs. Indigestion, gall-bladder disease, stomach ulcers and acid reflux into the food pipe may cause chest pain also. Breast pain may be related to hormone changes or fibrocystic breast disease.
