When I take a breath my chest hurts sharply. Hurts in the back of what feels like my trachea when I lean backward. When I lean forward, it hurts more in the front of the trachea. When I tilt my head back, base of tongue through base of jaw hurts. Tilting my head forward is not painful. Walking or increased breathing, makes it hurt more.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query on HCM.

In view of meningococcal vaccine recently, I suggest you consult a physician, who can have a look at you, examine you and advise you accordingly though the vaccine is generally and these may only be known side effects of the vaccine.
