Hi Glarose

this may be a sign of acute pleuritis which has got typical sharp throbbing pain in a localized area which increases on maneuvers like coughing sneezing taking deep breaths etc. you must go for chest xray PA view and complete blood count for the same.

because the pain is in left side, angina has to be ruled out,, so go for ECG.

meet your doctor with the above tests....

best wishes
