In brief: See doctor
Chest pressure could be caused by a heart condition and should be evaluated to rule out heart causes of chest pressure like heart attacks or lung problems.
Viral infections can cause symptoms like pleuritis - pain with deep breaths, but cardiovascular (heart) and lung problems need to be evaluated first. See your doctor.
