As online it will be impossible to give exact diagnosis as you have not tests done. There are 4 main causes that can cause chest pain
heart, lungs, gut and musculoskeletal.
Your symptoms are more like pleurisy. or in simple words inflammation of the lung covering.
Main features of this problem are...
occurs mostly after chest infections,
increases with cough and respiration
sharp in character.
comes on and off
So it is more likely to be pleurisy.
In most cases it is self limiting, painkillers over counter can help
Chest X rays are also needed for this.
mostly normal but done to rule out lung problems.
