Question: Hi. A few days ago I started having pretty severe chest heaviness/pressure, neck pain, and bilateral shoulder pain. I am 27 years old. I have not done any strenuous activity. Today I started having a sore throat. Is there anything to help with the chest heaviness/pressure. I can barely sleep from the discomfort. Sitting up makes it worse.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to health care Magic and thanks for putting up the query
As you are having discomfort in the whole upper torso, it is probably a muscular pain. it can be either due to cold exposure or some sprain.
You should take a muscle relaxant like a combination of diclofenac plus chlorzoxazone twice daily with hot fomentation.
Send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Take care
Thanks and regards
