Chest pain may be a symptom of a number of serious conditions and is generally considered as a medical emergency,may be benign/harmless.may be it is just indigestion or it may be a heart attack..There are so many factors and symptom which help us to decide.The symptoms are
-Chest Pain:The pain is usually located on the left side of the chest,but some times it is hard to find the exact location.Sometimes the pain is not on the left, but on the right or the center, or even at the top of the abdomen.Some people have no pain at all; instead they just have shortness of breath and some experience a sharper pain, or a feeling of indigestion.
-Shortness of breath.
-Sweating,nausea or feeling anxious.
-A pain in the left arm, neck and jaw.
-The other risk factors include Age,Sex,high cholesterol,smoking,Diabetes & hypertension,and genetics.
The person having all of the above symptoms certainly is cause for worry.
There are other symptoms that is not related to the heart are
-A stabbing pain that lasts a few seconds is not from the heart.If the pain that get worse when you press the chest is probably from bones/muscles.
-If pain persists for hours heart chest pain will either go away after 20-30 minutes, or will end up in a heart attack

 i think you will come under the first(indigestion/acid reflux).I hope the above tips help you to come a decision.if not,better consult a doctor and checked out..
