Chest tightness, discomfort, difficulty breathing, pain on coughing. Treatment for symptoms?

Ever since I woke up today, my chest has felt tight and uncomfortable. It is harder to breathe than normal and when I try to take a deep breath my chest hurts on the sides, the middle and to the shoulders. When i cough it also hurts. My heart rate feels normal. This has been going on all day for 14 hours and has not got better.
