Have upper left chest pain above breast, left shoulder pain, tightening sensation, feel lethargic. Reason?

I have upper left chest pain that comes and goes. it is just above the left breast. I also get pain in the left shoulder. at the same time. the chest pain increases with some discomfort in the left side of my neck, this feels like a tightening sensation. I have had an ecg showing normal. I have hemocromotoses. with a count of 450. I have been to a DR but unfortunately she just doesn't listen and writes things down on my file that I haven't even told her. I feel lethargic. at times. my BP is 170/85

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the upper chest wall can be related to a muscle sprain, excessive exertion, generalized viral infection or a chest infection. A direct examination of the area is necessary for proper diagnosis.
