Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Chest pain, has a number of different potential causes. Pain can arise from any structure in the chest- the skin, the muscles, the bone, the heart or the lung.
Usually pain related to the blood supply of the heart (angina) starts on activity and decreases at rest.It may be associated with shortness of breath, palpitations and sweating.
Pain can occur as a result of a condition called costochondritis - this is inflammation of the costal cartilage which connect the ribs to the sternum. This pain is constant, worse on moving the torso and if severe can be associated with shortness of breath.In addition, pain is felt on pressing the chest.
It is treated with anti inflammatory pain medication

This may be causing your discomfort.

It may be best to be assessed by your doctor to rule out any more serious causes.
