Dear,

Thanks for staying Online.

I am sorry to hear about your problem

Well, pain in chest/shoulder which become severe with breathing is supposed to be originating from the rib cage, which is the only pain sensitive part that moves during the act of breathing.

It is most likely not related with heart disease.

Possible cause can be- traumatic or inflammatory and not something of cardiac origin.
It can occur with muscle pull or nerve compression.

You can take OTC Tylenol and take rest and avoid any stretching.

I don't feel the need to visit ER at this time. Most likely it is not related with serious issue.
However to be on safe side and for peace of mind, you can get it checked from your doctor by Monday.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
