As this is a heart disease forum, I will primarily address your concern for your chest pain.  Chest pain can arise from a variety of sources including problems related to the heart, lungs, GI tract, and overlying skeleton, muscle, and skin.  Chest pain related to the heart are often times related to decreased blood flow from cholesterol plaque that has developed in the coronary arteries.  These types of pains usually occur during times of exertion and may be associated with other symptoms of arm/jaw pain, nausea, sweating, and shortness of breath.  If you are having any of these types of associations, I would suggest speaking to your regular physician who can perform a complete history and physical examination to ensure no further testing is warranted.
