Shooting pain above left chest while stretching or lying flat. What could be the reason?

Dear doc , I was playing with my kid and I kind of bent down to an awkward position. Since the last hour and thirty minutes I am having pain an inch above my left chest . I feel a shooting pain when I stretch or lie flat. I sincerely hope this is not a heart attack . I am a 32year old male weighing 84 kg and 180 cm tall. Regards, Ram
