Hi Megan
A heart pain is usually a central pressing pain oin the middle of the chest ( feels like a ton of bricks on your chest) associated with moving around. The pain you describe could be a heart pain but it could also be a referred pain from a muscle spasm or reflux from the stomach. If you feel short of breath, sweaty and light headed, rather go and see your doctor.
