Chest pain can be oodles of different things. Some scary, some benign.
It is true that gas can cause chest pain, weird and gross, but true. Usually goes away after a big toot or a poop.
Given your situation, panic attacks and anxiety can also cause chest pain that seems like a heart attack. Pretty benign but feels absolutely horrible. These can happen even if you don't perceive yourself to be under tons of stress... your body sometimes knows stress before your brain clues in on it.
Best thing you can do, go to your primary care doc, tell him/hr what's going on. They'll run an EKG (they'll put stickers on your chest and see how your heart is beating) and may run an ECHO where they take an ultrasound of your heart to make sure it's ok structurally. Both quick and painless procedures.
If they find anything, you're young enough where it's probably a simple thing (I have a murmur they found this way) that can be treated super easily. They may refer you to a cardiologist if they find anything (I've had one since I was a teenager for the murmur business). They can test for infections and other random stuff that could cause your symptoms.
If they can't find anything in the office, they may give you a houlter monitor or an "event monitor" were you hit a little button when you feel the pain and it records what your heart is doing. It's a cool little knick knack where it can send the data right to your doc and they can figure out what's going on and how to fix it.
And "broken heart" isn't really a diagnosis nor will it fix anything. Chest pain is never something to sneeze at if you don't know what could be causing it.
See a doc, get yourself checked out.
If it happens again before you can see your primary care, get to an ER to get checked out, just to be safe.
