Thank you for the input,

The pain in the left side of the chest can come from reflux of acid, heart disease, costochondritis, lung or pleura inflammation etc. Pain after taking spicy food can be due to acid peptic problem, reflux etc. In that case antacid, nexium etc can help & ibuprofen can make it worse. I would advise to get a review by doctor when the pain is recurring. Doctor can examine you & if he thinks can also consider taking an EKG or other test to rule out heart issue.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
