Cardiac pain please advise me!

For an unknown reason, my heart/chest, started hurting on Tuesday. It happens when I start walking at a moderate pace for as short as 30 seconds, and will only subside when I start slowing down and begin abdominal breathing. Then I tried going for a run, and barely lasted beyond 400 metres(Without timing, even without timing, I could not even continue running) It turns out that the slightest aerobic activity causes this, but I do not feel any other difficulties ie. no fatigue, no difficulty in breathing , no pespiration

It feels as if it beats rapidly and more violently when this happens, such that its pumping is rather observable visually, which is not typical of me, considering that I did my NAPFA test and got a Gold with pretty much ease. It does not hurt so much at the heart itself, but rather more at the sternum, where you should feel a depression between the two ribcages.

I have no idea what is going on, but I am just going to brainstorm a little:

1) I got a pretty big scare the day before when someone suddenly shouted
2) Jumped too much during badminton. i.e vertical acceleration
3) Drank isotonic drinks/ carbonated drinks
4) As my friend told me, running long distance and then stopping abuptly without cooling down properly on a regularly basis

Scarier Ideas:

1) Illness
2) Blood clot
3) ...

. Anyway, I am going to see a doctor soon, but would really like to know others' opinions on possible reasons for this happening.

Re: Cardiac pain please advise me!

Do get checked out. I had sudden, really bad chest pain a couple of months ago, was in the sternun area? Also stabbing back pain--got so bad I called myself an ambulance.
Turned out to be pleurisy. Had it quite some time ago, but this seemed to hurt more.
Good Luck and Take Care,
