In brief: See your physician

Common causes for chest pains include muscle spasm, inflammation of cartilage between ribs, and gastric reflux.
We take chest pains seriously because they could also be associated with heart disease. If you are above the age of 40, smoke, have high blood pressure, diabetes, or strong family history of heart disease, now's the time to visit your friendly neighborhood physician.
