Unusual ....: I am presuming you sense coldness, but that side of your chest is NOT colder to touch. Most would suggest an unusual neurologic problem, associated with diabetes or alcohol use perhaps, which alters nerve sensation. Other thoughts include side effect from anti-anxiety/anti-depressant medication, an unusual sign of anemia or even running a low grade fever. Plan to discuss with your doctor.

Doctor can evaluate: A person with tightness, pressure, or pain in the right chest can see his doctor to be evaluated. Pains can come from neck and shoulder muscles, the ribs and their joints, the lungs or heart inside the chest, the nerves coming out of the spinal cord, etc... If one feels his pain might be from the heart, has a tight chest pain, or has past heart disease, he should go now by ambulance to the ER.
