Weird feeling in chest.Sharp pain that stabs more when i breathe in.

Weird feeling in chest, Dr won't refer me to specialist because I'm only 31.? For the past couple of years, I ve had these weird feelings in the center of my breastbone (not near my heart) lower, directly above my stomach. There have been times I ve woken up with a sharp pain right there that stabs more when I breathe in. This has only happened once or twice. Now as I sit here, I feel a milder version of this (not painful) just noticable. I have mentioned this to my PCP (MY main Doc) and she said my insurance won t approve any referral like this because I am only 31 years old. I am a little paranoid because I had a young friend who died a few years ago from an aortic tear suddenly she was younger than I am now at the time. Are these discomforts common? Will asprin help something like this? What would you do? THANKS

You could have esophagial burning as the valve that clamps off the stomach may not be effective and you get an acid reflux, but that is just a guess
