I am experiencing a tight feeling in my chest that is very uncomfortable. I had a chest x-ray today and it is clear. I have asthma, but the neb treatments have not given me any relief.

My brother is on remicade for psoriatic arthritis.. do you think this chest discomfort could be a symptom of psoriatic arthritis?
