Thanks for writing to us.
The sharp sudden intermittent chest pain is not likely to be due to an injury in the area. It is more likely due to acute gastritis or musculoskeletal spasm or a mild viral lung infection. You need to consult a physician for proper examination.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
