Thanks for posting your query.
Pain in the chest with a feeling of weakness could be due to-
1. Generalized viral illness.
2. Improper diet.
3. Abnormal body posture, muscle sprain or myositis.
4. Electrolyte imbalance.
5. Anxiety neurosis.
These symptoms are not likely to be related to any major illness.
All these possibilities need to be ruled out after a proper physical examination and related blood tests.
Till the time you get evaluated for these possibilities, there are some of the other lifestyle options which you can follow:

1) You can take a mild pain killer like paracetamol or ibuprofen for symptomatic relief. Taking a well balanced will be helpful.

2) Do not take caffeine or alcohol at night just before going to bed.

3) Indulge in yoga and meditation to calm your mind.

4) You can also indulge in progressive muscle relaxation which is useful in anxiety by alternately tensing and relaxing the muscles.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
