Brief Answer:
Yes, get investigated

Detailed Answer:
Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Yes, It is most likely muscle pain – strain or spasm of chest wall muscles or neck, from posture, even anxiety…      
Yet, get further tests done – not urgent, but to conclude / not to rule in but to rule out     
Relation to exercise and SoB is an indication for further investigation … A stress ECG and ECHOcardiography, an-ray chest and Lung Function test (PFT) can exclude most problem related to the lung or heart…
If nothing is found (most likely), it reassures…

Good luck
God bless you
