Hi and thanks for the query,
its of utmost importance to know exactly why you experienced this sensation. It would interesting to know whether this is the first time you are experiencing this sensation or not. What actually triggered if , if you could recall or what other signs and symptoms were noticed, before, during and after the stabbing sensation. Also knowing how long it lasted could be very important. A chest X ray
could be very useful, coupled to a clinical evaluation. I suggest you visit your primary physician for a review and further testing if necessary.
Thanks and best regards,
