Chest pain: Yes it is a possibility of blood clot . Did they due a CT angiogram ? That checks for blood clots. Could also be pleurodynia -viral inflammation of the lung serosa treat with anti-inflammatories like motrin- if not allergic. May also be gallbladder. Would get a second opinion at ER/urgent care or MD
