Chest pains: More description of your chest pains is needed to pinpoint the diagnosis. It is not usual for any type of chest pain to radiate to the head. Sharp, fleeting chest pain may b e seen in a pinched intercostal nerve which runs between two ribs and is made worse by cough, deep breath or other motion. Inspiratory chest pain may be a sign of pneumonia but cough and fever are also usually present. See MD
