I had stabbing pain in my heart, kindly help me

A few days ago i had this pain in my heart . It felt like someone was stabbing it when i laughed/cried/sneezed or took deep breaths and sometimes it felt like it was doing flips. It hurt all day and a bit the next day then was fine. What was up with my heart? Oh and also, i dont know if it has anything to do with that but on that day, my normally light period was really heavy and i was wondering if it had anything to do with my heart and blood?

Was the heavy period causing you any concern as you may have had some kind of anxiety attack because of it. The symptoms apply to sudden anxiety! The heavier blood loss could have also brought on some anemia caused by regular or excessive activity!

I ve had this random sharp stabbing pain in my left lung for about a year and a half now, it started after I had gotten the swine flu shot and mainly when I laughed. Now it happens at random and has started to affect my right lung and a few pains at where my heart would be. When I get this pain, I have to stop what I m doing and I can t help my try and grab where the pain is even though it s internal. I m 17 and I don t do any drugs and am not on any kind of medication. I asked a doctor to see if they could tell me what I was but they said they needed to know exactly the reason of why my pain starts. Is this anything serious because sometimes it gets worst and sometimes not. only happens about once every few days too.

I have been having stabbing pain in my chest for a while. It is only in my heart and it doesn t matter what I am doing, the pain is always there. It does get worse if I bend over or do activity. I am on Voltaren gel and Voltaren meds. I had an EKG done and it was normal. I am scheduled for an ultrasound, chest xray, blood work, and a stress test. I have had this problem since I was a child, but it was never this bad. The pain went away quickly and it was never there all the time. It was just a once in a while kind of thing. What is wrong with me and should I be at the ER right now?

I have experienced a sudden onset of pain under my ribs. The pain is on both sides. It s not a stabbing pain. It s a continuous pain even if I m not moving and nothing seems to help. I ve tried Tylenol, ibuprofen, heating pad, even tums bc I read it could be digestion related. I have been packing all day bc we are moving but I ve not lifted much. I am under alot of stress so thought it could be related to that but fear it could be a heart problem. It even hurts to breath deep. I m in good shape and health.
