Dear Rake,
Answer the following with YES and you might have a problem:
Are you overweight - especially around your middle?
Do you have gout or diabetes?
Do you have a family history of heart disease?
Do you have high cholesterol?
Do you get this pain when you are active (walking etc)?

You should go to a GP and get cholesterol tests, and an ECG to check your heart. Don't wait until you keel over!
