Hi, I'm Dr.Nitika-a board certified physician. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

As per your description,you can take OTC Motrin for muscloskeletal pain.

However such dull pain in left side of chest can be associated with Ischemic heart disease,Gastroesophageal reflux disease..
So in my opinion,you should see a doctor ASAP for chest auscultation and EKG.

Also monitor your blood pressure.

Take OTC Zantac and Aspirin.

And if it gets worse over the period of time then visit ER.

Hope this helps.
