thanks for the query,
what you are describing is typical feature of pleurisy or inflammation of the covering of lung which causes shooting pain whenever you breathe as the inflammation of the pleurae leads to pain especially the parietal pleura, i would suggest u to get a chest x ray done and consult a doctor and start treatment.
take care.
