The things that can give you pains in the chest range from trivial (soft tissue injuries) to severe and life threatening. You should really get checked out by a doctor. Nonetheless - here are some reasons you might have pains in the chest Skin - do you have a rash, particularly the blistery rash of "shingles" Chest wall - have you sustained trauma (been struck) to the chest wall - you might have broken a rib or strained a muscle. This sort of pain is classically worse if you breathe or move. Lung lining (Pleura) - some things, particularly viral illnesses can give rise to sharp pains related to the lining of the lung. This is a pain that is classically worse if you breathe or move. Pneumothorax - air between the lung and the chest wall - can be spontaneous or relating to rib fracture Pneumonia - chest infection - you'd be coughing, having a fever and off your food ... Pulmonary Embolism - clot in the lung - small clots can get to the periphery and cause a pleuritic chest pain. Ischaemic heart disease - occasionally an atypical heart attack can result in right sided pain. Anxiety
