Brief Answer:
GERD

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Chest pains and difficulty in deep breathing can be secondary to acid peptic disease like hyperacidity or gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Do try a course of antacids like pantoprazole for a week, to get relieved.

Only when you have cough associated with above symptoms , lung pathologies can be suspected.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
