chest pain on right side

lately i've been experincing a dull pain on the right side of my chest, right above my breast and below my collar bone. it only hurts when i move my arm or body a certain way, and even then its not really painful, just discomfort. i'm only 18 yeras old. do you think i should get this checked out? could it be a heart problem? it's nowhere near my heart.

i'm also a heavy smoker, if that counts as anything, and have been under a lot of stress.

Sounds like muscle pain, and inflammation. Given your age, the fact that it's on the right side, the kind of pain, the fact that it presents when you move, etc., I think you shouldn't worry. Take some Advil (ibuprofen) or Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid/asa), and see if that helps.
