Palpitations are sensations that can be felt in the chest, throat or neck. Usually they are not serious, but that depends on whether or not the cause is an arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. Since you are experiencing slight chest pain, call your physician to make an appointment. You can expect to have a physical exam and electrocardiogram. Your physician may ask you to wear a Holter monitor for 24 hours or longer. This wearable monitor will record your heart beats and will show any irregular heart beats that may be responsible for the palpitations.
