Chest pain can originate from chest wall (bone, muscle, breast tissue or skin), esophagus, heart, lungs, tissue linings surrounding the lungs (the inflammation of which is known as pleurisy or pleuritis). Sometimes problems with neck, spine, gall bladder, liver or stomach may also cause chest pain. Usually it is difficult to decide what to do when you have chest pain.  
You should consult your physician to find out more about your symptoms. Besides a detailed history and physical examination, following investigations may be needed to find out the cause of your chest pain:
1. Electrocardiogram
2. Chest X-ray
3. Blood tests to look for infections, inflammation, blood clots and certain enzymes found in heart muscle.
4. Based on above test results, further advanced diagnostic tests may be required.
