It's probably pleurisy... which is no big deal and quite common. See your doctor for some peace of mind if you are worried about it.

havn t been doing any physical activity for over a year and i ve just gotten back into running. i started with high intensity interval training (run for 30 seconds as hard as possible, then walk for a minute) right away did it for 2 nights like this: 5 min jog 4 mins of HIIT then id mix between walking and running. on the third night i did 5mins jog then 6 mins of HIIT and at the end of the HIIT i experienced pains in my heart area and had a really high heart rate also it felt weird when i took a deep breath but not a normal breath, i started walking and the pain went away, then when i started to jog again the pain came back after a while when my heart rate increased. i dont have a history of anything like this before and neither do any of my family. Am i just starting out too high for this sort of stuff and take it down a noch? btw im 17, 5 11 , and 181lbs.

Actual heart pains caused by acid reflux? Are doctors scamming people? I went in the emergency room today because I ve been having chest pains for the last three days. After tests were done I was told its just acid reflux, but I hardly ever get heartburn. However, after a fatty meal I do get sharp stabbing pains in my heart (left side of chest). How can a doctor equivicate heartburn, which is a burning sensation, with sharp stabbing pains like heart attack symptoms. My left arm has been hurting also. All this and Im only 21. Whats weird is that it has lasted for 3 days. How can acid reflux be causing constant pain for 3 days when I have no symptoms of normal heartburn (i.e. burning sensation)? They did blood tests, the Electrocardiogram, they did chest xray, and ultrasound on my gallbladder and liver. But they didn t find anything abnormal. The pain still persists, when I take a deep breath I get a sharp stabbing pain in my heart. Its as though I have a clogged artery and when my lungs expand with air it puts greater pressure on my heart region causing the pain in the heart. Thanks for the help so far, these answers have been helpful.

Pain in left hip that comes and goes, but only lasts for about 10 seconds each time. It s such a immense pain, it literally takes my breath away and almost puts me on the floor! Colon cancer is in my family. I am worried this may be part of the problem. The pain feels as though a large butcher knife stabs me in the left hip, and is being twisted. But only for those few seconds, until the next one comes. I never know when it will come, so it catches me off guard every time.
