QUESTION: you know damn well pain from heart comes under chest area nor ribs you are a phony and no-nothing

Answer
As I said - This is not something that can be properly evaluated over the Web. It probably is not cardiac but could be ulcer disease, gall bladder disease or a number of other things.  You need to discuss this with your personal physician. Good luck!!!
