Even without exertion you can still get twinges in the chest area due to chronic tension of the area. Check when you breathe, is your tummy rising and falling or is your chest rising and falling? If it is your chest then you are shallow breathing because your chest muscles are tense. They can then spasm (the pains you feel). Try to concentrate on breathing from your tummy for a few minutes a few times a day. Good luck with everything.
