Hello and hope you are doing well.

It could be angina, pain due to inadequate supply of oxygen to the heart muscle. Cardiac pain or chest pain can be felt as a tightness and worsens with activity or exercise. This could be more relevant if you are a smoker, are overweight, have a positive family history, are a diabetic and have hypertension. The other causes to consider would be cervical spondylosis (neck problem) or disorders of the nerves, muscle or shoulder joint. It would be wise to consult a doctor just to be sure its nothing more serious.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
