This is a serious symptom that could be a sign of heart disease, lung disease or disease of the large blood vessels that carry blood to or from the heart.  It could also just be a form of chest muscle spasm or nerve irritation, these a nuisance but not serious disease.  I suggest that you see your doctor without delay so as to make sure that your chest tightness is not a sign of one of the more serious diseases.

Good luck
