pain in upper right chest area

Recently among a flood of digestive issues, I've noticed a tightness in my lungs. And the last two days pain in the right side of my chest. I doubt that this is entirely heart related, being localized to the right, radiating slightly up into my shoulder.

I've have been suffering from diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fatigue, etc.

Any ideas, what this new symptom could be? It does not seem to be acid reflux, as it seems to remain constant, and not that same type fo sensation. Its more of a dull ache.

Anythoughts appreciated, as now I am concerned for my lungs..and god knows I don't need to be tested for anything else these days!

Re: pain in upper right chest area

Its hard to explain other than "tightness in the lungs" . Almost like a pressure. Years ago I was diagnosed with having "Exercise induced asthma". Basically I was REALLY out of shape. I overcame this by running. But it seems SIMILAR to that. In the cneter or slightly right of my chest I feel tight, as though mylungs aren't completely expanding(?) or some minor pressure.

It doesnt seem connected with eating, (i.e. heartburn) either. Every now and then I get easily winded. For example running up two flights of stairs will have me heaving a bit. But this doesn't happen EVERY time I do this or exert myself.

Another thing to note is I have failed in exercising at all the last few months, except walking my dog a few times a week. All of the digestive issues and work has left little time or energy for me to do that. Could it just be that my lungs are screaming at me to go work out?
