Hi and welcome.

The site of pain you described can be due to stomach like gastritis and peptic ulcer disease but the most important problem that can be related to pain at this site is angina or heart issue. So anything related to heart needs to be ruled out at ER so go to ER and get an EKG to be on safe side. A physical examination would help in exact diagnosis as well.
