    It can also be used with other nouns than "problems":
    to get (noun) off your chest which
    means what Xabiachica said to tell someone about (noun/pronoun), the noun usually represents your feelings, especially those that are suppressed, pent-up, for example: irritation.

    Indeed. If you saw a friend looking anxious, you might advise them to "get it off your chest, you'll feel better" without necessarily saying what "it" is.
