Our expert says:
Pauline, it’s difficult to say without examining you first, but it might be due to something like pleurisy. You can try taking an anti-inflammatory for a couple of days, but if it doesn’t clear up within a couple of days, the best would be to see your doctor. You can also e-mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za if you’re interested in something I wrote on the causes of chest pain. Good luck.
