In brief: Musculoskeletal

Unless you have a terrible family history, you are a little too young for a heart attack.
Stopping smoking can cause anxiety and tension, which can lead to your symptoms. Obviously, if they persist or you are really concerned, consult your physician.

In brief: Withdrawal

Nicotine withdrawal can cause many symptoms that can be alarming.
Certainly any symptoms of chest discomfort radiating to the neck should be quickly evaluated by a healthcare professional. If you are alarmed, please don't ignore the signs and seek attention.
