chest pain

I have been having chest pain on the left side of my chest. I dont know if its my breast that is causing me pain or my heart. I feel relieved when I lay down but once I stand it seems to come back. I also took a bayer asprin just in case I might be having a heart attack but taking it seems to not relieve me of the pain. Is this a heart problem, muscular or breast problem? has anyone experienced anything like this? I am also having shortness of breath and my heart beats fast, these are new symptoms.
