Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post suggest that it might be due to Infection/Pathology of lung.
So, investigations like X ray chest and Pulmonary function test can clinch the diagnosis.

Other causes of chest pain include:
1. Costochondritis (infection/inflammation of the bone-cartilage junction)
2. Strained chest muscles.
3. Short-term, sudden anxiety with rapid breathing
4. Pain from the digestive tract, such as esophageal reflux

So, it will be better to consult a Doctor & get a physical examination done to rule out other causes. So that proper management steps could be taken.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Thanks & take care.
