Indigestion?: The history you give does not help me much. A chest pain that worsens with breathing is said to be pleuritic meaning that it is related to the membrane around the lung. It doesn’t often radiate nor does it normally come and go spontaneously. I am more inclined to think of a digestive tract problem. Check if you don’t get gaseous distention especially after your meals. And also check your diet.
