  • Your heart is on the left side of your chest, if i am correct. It could just be cramps. I get those sometimes. To the point where i cant even take a breath, or move for a couple of seconds. Than they go away. But if you feel its something else, than you should see a doc.

  • esophageal spasms. I get those and it is a sharp pain and I feel like there is something stuck in my throat. It is mostly towards the middle usually. More info? just a pain? is there anything else that happens along with it?

  • It could be an inflammation of the membrane around the lungs- pleurisy? (not in the medical field). I had this once and winced every time I took a breath. Which isn't quite the symptoms you described. Good luck with your appointment, and please keep us updated.

  • its a pain that happens on the right side of my chest and seems to go from the front to my back but from the inside (if that makes sense). it doesnt happen all the time but when it happens, it hurts so bad. i will let everyone know what the dr says.
