If allergy, there will be a cause, if stress, learning relaxation skills will help. In either case, our immune system thinks it/you are under attack and responds.

See your doctor: The symptoms you are describing could be a number of things but chest pain is one that needs further attention and evaluation by a doctor. An 'itchy feeling' with pain on only one side of the chest could be the initial symptoms of shingles(herpes zoster), and a red vesicular(pimple like)rash may or may not follow shortly. It is however impossible to be certain without going to see your doctor. ...Read more
