welcome to hcm

chest pain may be due to many causes like Acid reflux disease,pericarditis,esophagitis,costochondritis or respiratory infection associated with bronchitis or emphysema. it may be due to repeated cough due to copd which causes the respiratory muscles to get fatigue

you have to consult a chest physician about it. it may be reinfection or simple acid reflux disease

take care
