Answers:    Yes.
In guys your age (especially if they are tall or hold recently had pneumonia or have asthma), a single lung sometimes become deflated. Aside from that, chest pain (especially shooting pain) in that area automatically merits an ER trip. Go.
You should progress to your gp and get it checked out. It might not be anything serious but its better to get it checked out. Better be safe than sorry.
