Chest Pain: Few causes, and given your age, I would put them in the following order: - Pain due to muscle sprain of the chest, especially if you hurt your chest somehow - A lung clot, especially if you are feeling short of breath with it. It might happen secondary to a clot elsewhere in the body like the legs - A puncture of the lung, especially if you are having shortness of breath Get it checked please soon
