I keep having chest pains and what could these pains be as ive had an ECG and it showed up clear ?

Every so often I get sharp chest pains, it feels like there directly underneath my left breast. It happens mostly when i get distressed or even laugh to much i.e when im exerting myself the pain just appears from nowhere and i cant breath in to much or out to much, if i do its like someone is stabbing me with a sharp pin in the chest! The pain generally lasts for about 1 minute, but sometimes it can go on for 5 mins or more, then i start to panic and think im goin to die. What could these pains be as ive had an ECG and it showed up clear.

Hi I have chest pain that like and my Professor (heart specialist) has said its muscular pains in the chest area. I have had seven heart ops and still get chest pains and they are just muscula pains and all you can do is stop and have some water, this helps me. If you smoke you need to cut down or stop (hey i smoke at times). Try and relax when this happens but if the pains get worse then go back to your GP and get them to refer you to a heart specialist who do much more test than just an ECG. It could even be heart burn due to eat fast or something like that. Good luck
