May be it is due to smoking. Especially if it is aggravated by deep breathing. Cigarette smoke is very notorious in causing inflammation in the lungs which can in turn lead to chest pains. Also, cigarette smokers have more acidity than non smokers.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Keep a check on your bp without pregnancy also to know whether you have the tendency for it or not and get a general physical examination done to rule out any other pathology also keep your diet restricted like low salt sugars and fats once you get pregnant get under the care of an obstretician as soon as possible and start following her instructions for diet medication and exercises etc strictly once you will tell her your history she will advise you with all the precautions to be taken during pregnancy.
