I am sorry but not going to a doctor is not an option anymore. The condition of your hands indicates that there is significant inflammation as well as possibly, infection too and should not be neglected. If it worsens and spreads, the complications may be fatal. Chest pain may be a complication of the same. Please consult a doctor immediately and try to get your life back on track.

Best wishes.
