What can be the cause for constant and sharp heart pain ?

I was born early and had PDA, and now I am 15, but I feel sudden sharp pains in my heart and my chest and have to take deep breaths to release it. What might cause this?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
If you had PDA, it should not manifest now. It generally closes after birth. You need to have an echocardiography for proper diagnosis. It is difficult to guess like this. May be it is a chest infection.
