User :   what is it when I bend over to pick up something I get a sharp pain in my chest for about three second. It does not let me come up either until it goes away. It does not happen everything I bend over either. I do not know why. But recently the sharp pain has been getting sharper I think and more frequent. I have been able to get up without nobody seeing me, but if anyone did, I think it would really look serious to them, because it also causes me to look in pain in face and gesture. Anyone out there with an answer. If so, thank you so much.
