Promise to not laugh, but I'm gonna tell you what happened to me. I was dx'd with a heart murmer years back and was told "if you feel any chest pain get to a hospital or doctor asap". Few weeks later, I had a severe pain, that traveled a tad and felt like an explosion going off in my heart. I was on a city bus. The busdriver called 911, declaring heart attack. Paramedics couldn't figure out what was wrong with me but saw I was not faking the pain. Rushed me to hospital. DR thought I was looking for a fix, til a "boom" hit while I was doing the "squeeze my hands" test. Then he figured it out. I had a severe acid reflux attack. In severe attacks they can mimic heart problems. You mentioned what I felt, so try some anti acids and see if it helps. IIf it continues, see a doctor. I have to take prilosec for mine. And tums.
