Vascular disease?: One possibility is carotidodynia, a painful disorder involving either carotid artery. Cause often unknown. Other similar causes include arteritis, arterial dissection. Chest involvement could indicate involvement of arteries closer to the heart. Disorders involving the base of the heart (which is actually at the top) can also do this. Consider seeing cardiologist or neurologist.
