    You need to add more details to your question... How long have you been having chest pain? Does the pain move from one place to another? Do you have any shortness of breath? What were you doing when the pain started? Do you already have other medical problems? Has this ever happen to you before? How old are you? These are questions any medical person will ask you...then you will need an EKG which checks your heart, (this is a painless test) and then some blood test will be done. If the pain continues you need to go to the nearest ER. Having chest pain can be symptoms to other conditions ( like a bad gallbladder or gas build up) but the doctor will need to run tests on you before making a diagnosis....See a doctor STAT
