Thanks for the query.

Based on your description, I can think of few possibilities

1. Ischemic heart conditions - EKG / blood troponin levels needs to be done to rule out. Your doctor may also ask you to get stress test done.

2. Reflux oesophagitis - GERD and hiatus hernia needs be ruled out. Upper GI endoscopy test is entailed.

3. Muscle pains.

4. Stress and anxiety.

If the symptoms do not improve well with aleve, I encourage you to consult your good and helpful information. Should you have any more concerns, I will be available to answer them.
