The chest pain in not very typical of a Cardiac cause, but a Cardiac cause of chest pain is still possible. Since you are 50+ age it is always safe to get an EKG done to rule out any heart related cause. This could very well be a NCCP (Non cardiac chest pain) but better play it safe a get an EKG.

I would like to know some more details about the symptom so that I can give a more definitive opinion.
1. Has the pain recured ? Do you have any pain now ?
2. Is there sweating, nausea, vomiting or syncope associated with the pain ?
3. Is the pain radiating ? Like is it moving to your arms or neck ?
