In brief: Rule out two things

Two worrisome causes for such pain that have to be ruled out are angina/ heart attack and thoracic aortic aneurysm or dissection.
Acute episodes of such pain need immediate evaluation in the emergency room.

In brief: Chest pain

Those symptoms might be just due to musculoskeletal pain which is a benign condition.
However might be something more serious if you have history of high blood pressure or if you have family history fo marfan's.
