Perhaps serious.: There are a variety of things that could cause this. If it just started happening hours or minutes ago and it is getting worse, seek immediate medical attention because it could be a heart attack or a pulmonary embolism. If it has been happening for a longer period of time, it might just be a muscle strain or broken rib. ...Read more

Chest pain?: If you have chest pain on deep breath, it suggests pleurisy - inflammation of the outside lining of your lung (the "pleura") but that wouldn't explain neck pain. If the pain if primarily confined to your neck, an overstretched or injured muscle is more likely . A neck injury with nerve root traction could cause pain in both areas - at 17, you're too young for arthritis. ...Read more

Rhomboid and: levator scapulae muscle spasm is known to do the same thing with localized sharp back pain radiating to the front under the collarbone. Try warm compresses and firm massage on that side of back. Usually resolves so long as you are not experiencing breathlessness. If you are proceed to the ED for a chest xray to eliminate a pneumothorax or pulmonary embolus. ...Read more

Muscles- skeletal : most likely, in your case it's the muskuloskrletal system. Maybe you pulled a muscle? Strained? Lifted a heavy weight? Less likely cause for you can be from your heart, or lungs. Now until you have risk factors heart is unlikely. If you have fevers, cough, phlegm, lungs might be affected. See a doc if concerned ,Especially if travelled recently or any risk for blood clots. You can consult us too.. ...Read more
