Chest pain, with or without burping, can be caused by many factors, ranging from indigestion or a pulled muscle to serious events like cardiac arrest. You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience severe or persistent chest pain, so that emergency room staff can rule out life-threatening conditions like a heart attack or stroke. In a hospital environment, doctors can perform tests on your heart, such as an echocardiogram and a stress test, to make sure it is healthy. If your chest pain is coming from another source, you will at least have ruled out some of the most dangerous possible causes.
