Hello Mr Frei

Sharp pain in the center bottom of the chest in a gentleman, is to be regarded as a result of reduced blood supply to the heart, until proved otherwise. Did it ever occur after you had eaten something?

Recurrence of sharp central chest pain with light-headedness, suggests that blood supply to the brain is inadequate during the period of sharp pain.

Let me assume you are a male, not obese, in your 30s (age) and a non-smoker. You need to be tested from the point of view of diabetes as well as reduced blood supply to heart. Please get in touch with your physician.

Hope you get over the problem of pain as well as light-headedness at the earliest,

With warm regards
