What causes dull headache and tightness in the chest?

I am a 36 yr old female. I exercise regularly and take 25mg of Atenolol daily for high blood pressure. I am feeling very tired, have a dull headache an there is tightness in my upper chest when I inhale deeply. I took my BP and it reads 107/62 on my home monitor.

Hi,

If you feel the pain during the respiration, then it is a neuromuscular pain. Don't worry, it is not dangerous, it happens quite frequently in young people. Just take Ibuprofen 400 mg. If pain continues, then take Ibuprofen three times a day, for 3-5 days after the meal. Usually a tablet is enough, but sometimes there is a need for taking it for some days.

Take care
