Chest pain, bruises on the back, pain on breathing. Serious condition?

Hi I was having a pain in my chest , shoulder and throughout my left arm. When I breathed deaply it would hurt pretty bad. The pain has goten better over the past few days but now I just found 2 small bruise like marks on my back & close to my underarm . I havnt had any injuries that would cause a bruise & they re not painful to the touch..not sure if this is something more serious than I first thought..I dont have insurance so I ve tried to wait it out but dont wanna wait too long..thank u in advance for any help u can give.

Thanks for your Query,
Your chest pain radiates to shoulder & arm is more during exertion? is it associated with perspiration?
Is it relieved by taking Sorbitrate tablet.? If yes then the chances of it is cardiac pain.May be Angina.
Your bruise on back has no relation with this pain but some times herpes infection mimics cardiac pain & it starts with bruising.
So consult your doctor he will take ECG & guide you accordingly.
