What causes recurring chest pain, severe headache and shortness of breath?
With highest probability, no
Greetings and welcome to HCM. I understand your concern. Thank you for your question
Well, without going too deep into "bad" diagnoses, such as lung cancer or coronary heart disease, let us take this step by step. You are a 41-year individual, of female sex, and these diagnoses apply to older ages.
This, with highest probability, is an acute or chronic inflammation of the locomotory system of the ribcage (bones, cartilages, muscles).
Why does this happen? A body of reasons, starting from the position assumed in the bed during sleep, to positions. and postures assumed while working or conducting everyday activities. Without going any further, I would recommend you to be put on a five to seven days course of over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), thrice a day.
Otherwise, if this is a very worrisome phenomenon to you, conduct a plain chest X-ray, to determine/exclude the lung cancer.
I hope my answer is helpful. Feel free to ask follow-up questions, as I am happy to help.
My best regards,
