I understand your concern.

However any sort of chest pain shouldn't be ignored and as your pain is persistently severe so I recommend you to visit ER rather than wait & watch.

EKG,chest X-ray must be done in your case.

It can be possible that it's not related to heart however you should see a doctor ASAP for a precautionary measure.

Hope this helps.
