Im not a doctor,Im thinking may be you pulled a muscle or put your upper back out somewhere.I know when I put out my upper back,I get a pain that radiates through the front part of my chest,and that can cause pain when breathing in & out. Has this ever happened before? Did you workout or something else strenuous? Go to a doctor if it gets worse.

hey thanks for commenting.much appriciated. this hasnt happened before and i havent done any strenuous activitys recently. it feels as if its my heart when i breath in you can feel a fair amount of pressure. Its almost as if it is touching my chest from the inside. do you think i could be a heart problem of some sort or even something like high blood pressure or high blood sugar levels?

I would seem to think that being only 16 it wouldnt be a heart issue,but you never know. Go to a doctor.
