Seems like Kazbern got this one for you...Costochrondritis can cause chest pain and a moist heating pad can help, and you need to let your doctor's know you have shortness of breathe while exercising as thats exercise induced asthma...and an inhaler taken a 1/2 hour before exercise can be helpful for this...
Also make a journel and keep the lines of communication open between you and your doctors...
