Thank you for all the information,
The pain in the middle of chest can be due to heart issues.
This can occur in ischemia or low blood supply to the heart like angina.
Reflux of acid, esophageal spasm can cause pain here.
Sometimes anxiety, tension can be related.
The pain in center of the chest needs to be examined by doctor.
Heart disease is of serious concern, it should be ruled out without delay as you have high cholesterol.
I would advise to get examined by doctor asap & have an EKG, blood work & other tests
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
