Chest pain might be due to many reasons other than heart problem (primarily pleuritis - swelling of the lung membrane due to infection).
Get your CBC (Complete Blood Count) and chest x-ray done to rule out this cause.
Do massage on the affected area with a pain relieving cream/gel (Example : Bengay, Volini gel).
Take tablet Zifi 200mg twice daily for 5 days.
