It is a good idea to be thoroughly evaluated by your primary care doctor for other causes of chest pain and possibly a rheumatologist for spondyloarthropathy. Psoriatic arthritis is a spondyloarthropathy. Sometimes people with spondyloarthropathy can have a decrease in the amount their chest expands with deep breath. It is important that you follow up on this problem.
