Doctor :   Hi
User :   I've had sharp stabbing pains in my chest.. (left side, near my left armpit above where a pocket would be on a shirt) that caused a panic attack on nov. 10th... after that it was chronic, maybe around 5-6 sharp stabs a day.. eventually it dwindled down to none... then i got a bad ear infection (My first ear infection actually) for about a week and a half.. 3 days after that, the sharp chest pains came back. I've been to a doctor and they said "we dont know, go to the ER" when it's not really an emergency, and i dont have the money.. Ive looked into the varying factors such as food intake, medicine vitamin intake etc and nothing seems to be... relating at all... Except that I feel very cold when it happens, and if i am very warm and comfortable, it doesn't seem to happen when i am warm.. It seems to be worse when i am alone or thinking about it.. But it will still happen if im completely ingrossed in a movie or something else.. It doesnt get worse if i move or breathe, laugh, or cough. It seems to be related to almost nothing... I'm a female, 22, overweight.. I never get sick, not even colds.. this is so rare and frustrating for me..
