Hi and welcome,
There can be many reasons of such symptoms including acidity, neuromuscular or cardiac. I would suggest you to take antacid and painkiller you already taken. It would be safe to get an EKG if it is central or on left side of chest or radiating to jaw or left arm to rule out any cardiac problem though it is less likely in your age group.
Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks for reply,
This is most likely muscular pain. You should continue taking advil, apply ibuprofen gel over the area and warm compresses would help in reducing muscular spasm. If symptoms does not improve in a day or two get an x-ray chest and chest examination by your GP to rule out lung pathology.
This is typical of muscular spasm, it aggravates with movements of muscles.
Wish you good health.
