intermittent pain in chest

Hi have been out of work for 4 months, and obviously lacking in excercise (carpenter)
am 47, usually have indegestion ,relieved by taking normal zantac etc.doc told me to loose about a stone,  since being off work started getting pain in chest (intermittent) sometimes at night which wakes me up, sometimes in day, take a drink of water and it goes away. went to doctors he sent me for blood tests, helibactor etc,  got call saying all came back ok but sugars were high,so went for another glucose test, doc gave me some indegestion tablets called something like operzamale? Indegestion appears ok but still getting this ramdom pain, started back at work today running up and down stairs no problem at all,   when i was about 11 remember having similar problems docs said had a gimp in my esophogus tube?
