This has been ongoing with me for about 5 years. I have these sharp,sometimes breath taking pains where my heart is. Sometimes If I am laying on my right side in bed, my heart hurts so bad, i have to roll over but I have to do it very carefully because if I move to fast, it hurts even worse. Sometimes it hurts when I'm sitting up in bed and I go to scoot down to lay down. It is really starting to scare me. I have had an EKG done when it first started hurting about 5 years ago and they found nothing. What could it be? I was thinking maybe it could be anxiety so they out me on Cymbalta at one point but I still get the pains. I am pregnant too and I get scared I'm going to have a heart attack. I'm only 33.I was thinking a pulled muscle but I've done nothing to get that,besides, its been 5 years.I would say I get the pains at least once a day if not more.Has anyone else experienced this,what was it?

Costochondritis is an inflammation of a rib or the cartilage connecting a rib. It is a common cause of chest pain. I get it and two of my children get it. It can be very painful.
