Bob, it might be due to a host of things, but the first thing that comes to mind is a heart problem. At this time of year a lung infection is a close second. The best would be to see your doctor and have a proper diagnosis made. You can also mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za if you’re interested in a copy of something I wrote on the “other than heart” causes of chest pain. Good luck.
