See your Doctor: Chest tightness and pains could be from many causes, some minor and some serious. Perhaps it is simply from asthma or a virus. It could be something more serious such as some other type of lung problem or even a heart problem. Your doctor will ask you more detailed questions and do an exam and then may need to do additional testing
