It is important to treat both simultaneously.
Many causes: Cardiac causes including valvular or coronary heart disease, angina, throracic or addominl aneuryms, thoracic masses intrathoracic or extra thoracic, bulging/herniated thoracic or cervical discs, muscle spasms, clavicle fractures, referred shoulder or neck problems, pulmonary edema, luminary embolus, vertebral fractures or masses, post surgical scar tissues, beast rumors, arthritis of spine.See 1 more doctor answer

First step first: I am not sure what is the nature of your pain (when does it occur, left vs right or mid, during day/night, at rest, when active, or both), and how long you have had this pain.
