Chest pains need to be evaluated! You can read more here:
Off hand, I’d check you for a problem with your pericardium (heart sack), or your lungs (pleuritic symptoms):
Tests involved include blood tests, EKG, Chest X-ray, and possibly a cardiac ECHO, and/or CT scan of your chest:
Diagnosis & treatment depends on what is found.
Hope this helps,
