for the past three days I have gotten a pain on the left side of my chest, its like under my breast and to the side it only last for a few min. Because I take motrin ib and it only happens once a day. But today its not going away I thought it might be heart burn so I took a zantax and it didnt help. The pain has gone down a little and just hurts when I take a deep breath. Is this heart burn or something else?

You could have a rib out of place, or your back could be out. Just try to relax and if it doesn't get better in a couple of days, go to the doctor. Simply because chest pain isn't something to take lightly.
