Chest pain during nose blowing could be due to inflammation of the muscles between the ribs. You can visit your GP (general practitioner) for an examination. Chest X-rays may be also necessary to exclude affection of the lungs or pleura (the lining of the upper body cavity and covering for the lungs). You can try to use aspirin to relieve the pain.
