At first it felt as if someone slugged me in the middle of my chest, but when the pain moves to the sides, it's a constant throbbing or burning. Only once, about 3 weeks ago did I feel actual heart pain for about 10 seconds. But most of the time, I feel only chest pain that I can compare to being punched.

Unless Diet Pepsi counts, then no.
Have you tried any of the antiacid meds for over acid stomach?
Yep - I've been taking a combination of Pepto-Bismal, Mylanta, and Tums for about a week now when my stomach problems began, but the chest pain is still here.
Don't know if this contributes, but at times my throat feels like its burning, like I just threw up. Or when I clear my throat, it will feel burned and scratchy. Plus, I have a really nasty taste in my mouth.
I have no clue if these relate to my chest pain or not. I'd love to go to the hospital for a complete exam to get to the root of my problems, but my mom doesn't want to take me. When I told her I was feeling nautious, dizzy, had bad headaches and chest pain, she told me I was a hypochondriac.
I'm not one who complains about ailments too much - I'm just worried that if I don't get this checked out it'll turn out to be something serious.
