What could be the reason for tension in chest with shortness of breath ?

Occasionally an organ in my chest tenses up and causes my chest to ache right in between my breasts. Whenever that happens, I feel that I get a slight shortness of breath . Do you know what this could be from?

Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

There is nothing to worry... just because of tension , there will be palpitation (sense of feeling ones own heart beat) shortness of breath is due to anxiety... If there is continuos pain in chest or chest discomfort, then an ECG must be done to rule out cardiac disorders...
