Chest pain on deep breathing when running, playing basketball, etc...

I have been having some deep breathing chest pain whenever my breathing gets too intense, such as
running after 10 tennis balls in a tennis match, or playing basketball, or running up a hill.

I have not been exercising much this year, because I've had a thyroid problem, when it feels like I
have some energy, I try running, then often have to quit because of the thyroid issues. So I haven't
been exercising regularly. Could it just be that I'm expanding my chest wall more than usual and
that hurts?

It also hurts when I press on my chest when this happens, it Feels like a lot of pressure.

It doesn't seem to affect my breathing except it hurts.

I just want some verification that it's not something more serious. Cause I want to start running
again 3 times a week, without having to worry about it.

Thanks 39 years old, thyroid problems, no other issues.

This kind of thing can not be reliably diagnosed over the internet. You should see a Dr. and I would
suggest very soon. He may order a stress test where you are put on a treadmill where your heart is
monitored. In the meantime you could try breathing hard while at rest to see what happens.

Unlikely.

Sorry, can't provide that verification for you.

Would suggest you inform your doctor. S/he will likely refer you to see a cardiologist.

Chest pain is a big enough issue.
