Tightness in Chest: I understand your concern. Thank you for information about cough, exhaling causing pain, Amoxycillin and Neurofen. See Physician for possible diagnosis of lung problem, muscle strain rib fracture, or Anxiety; and treatment. It is not likely a heart condition due to your age, not smoking and partial discomfort. Slight burning sensation is y due to Neurofen; not GERD. See Psychiatrist for Therapy
