Chest pain

I'm an 18 year old male and have been expericening chest pain. It only hurts when I lower my shoulders all the way. The pain is at the center of my chest and can go to my back at the center. I played basketball last Saturday and I was chest checking people so I'm guessing and hoping it's brusised I haven't had any other symptoms. Does this sound serious?

The pain in all probability is related to some muscle pulled and possibly skeletal.  The movement of your shoulders likely stretches a sore muscle and/or puts a strain on a sensitive area.  Doesn't sound serious!  Give it some time to heal and doing bench presses may delay the healing process.

sounds to me like you've bruised yourself, this can be sore and painful, i get this when ive carried my baby bfor a while and because its the centre i get worried but i know its my ribs or muscles, if you have pain radiating down the centre i would see a doctor or anything like dizziness, breathless.
