In brief: Arm and chest apin

Chest and upper pain changes with positional changes sounds like musculo skeletal pain.
It can originate from the cervical spine. If the pain persits have it checked out, physical therapy might help

In brief: HaveAnswered YourOwn

question. If movement changes the sensation, including pain, then at least part of the mechanism is going to be nerve, muscle, tendon, ligament &/or bone.
Use explicit movements to help clarify what makes better, worse, change in any way. No physician can do that for you-you are the primary physician. Study anatomy online for clues. Consider reading Robin McKensie's & John E. Sarno's work on pain.
