Chest pain from PiCC line?

I got my line 5 days ago, chemo 4 days ago. I expected the discomfort in the arm, not sure if it's the tape or line preventing me from twisting my arm but I'm more concerned about the discomfort in the chest (tightness on deep breath) and some pain in my upper left and right chest. Not sure if I should call the nurse or is this possibly typical for some and will settle soon?
Thanks everyone, everything is so new.

@Wing Girl I would definitely call the nurse at a minimum; in fact, I might even go to emergency. I am not trying to scare you, but anything involving chest pain and breathing should be addressed immediately. Don't wait to see if it gets better.
