In brief: Anxiety?

These are common symptoms seen with anxiety.
You don't have to have anxiety disorder per say, but an event or circumstance that may be causing more stress than usual. Sometimes the stress is internalized can manifest with shortness of breath, chest pain, and rapid heart rate. Try some meditation (aka "mindfulness") and see if that helps! Also, follow your doctor's instructions.
