In brief: Check with your doc

This could be muscle or arthritic pain in chest or inflammation of the covering of heart or lungs.
It could also be nerve pain from arthritis in the neck (cervical pain). While less likely to be angina pain, it should be discussed with and evaluated by your doctor.

In brief: See a doctor now

There are many potential causes to chest pain, the most serious of which is a heart attack.
See your doctor (or go to the emergency department) now to find out the cause and to determine if this is from a heart issue, or another issue.
