A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Chest pain is a very serious symptom and one that should not be taken lightly. Please see a Doctor and get checked up for heart disease. The Doctor will do an ECG to check for heart disease. If negative, talk about other causes like lung disease, acidity and so on. The Doctor will need to examine you to reach the diagnosis.

Hope this helps you.
