In brief: Chest

Chest pain that causes shortness of breath should be evaluated by a doctor sooner rather than later. Even though many people equate chest pain with a heart attack, there are actually many causes of chest pain - some of which are concerning, some of which are not.
You need an examination to know whether your symptoms are something to be worried about. I've attached a website with some helpful information about chest pain. In the meantime, give your doctor a call. Good luck!
