Mild to moderate chest pain into neck. Bp has been high lately. Just now 157/98. Should I be concerned right now? Not short of breath or nauseous

Cautious. Any chest pain should be considered very cautiously -- talk with your doctor! It seems that your blood pressure is still not controlled -- call your doctor asap!
Chest pain. The chest pain should be evaluated as potentially cardiac in origin. Blood pressure is high and needs to be treated.
Call your doctor now. Please call your doctor as soon as possible. Your symptom is strongly suggestive of coronary artery disease cause by blockage of an artery in your heart called coronary artery. If you feel nauseous or sweaty call 911 as iti could a sign of a major heart attack.
