I started getting sharp heart pains, please help

I started getting sharp heart pains about 4 hours ago. Every time I inhale deeply, I get a sharp pain in my heart. I thought it was something called Precordial Catch Syndrome, but it said that only lasts 3 minutes at the most. I m pretty sure that heartburns don t hurt for this long. Also note that I took some pepto bismol.. What should I do? P.S.-I m only 15 years old, I m physically active, eat healthy, and I m at a healthy (but skinny) weight.

Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.

I woke with a stomach pain down below cause I m about to get my period, but I usually don t get sharp pain like this. Then my heart felt a lot of pressure and started racing fast for a few minutes and it happened a few times. And now my head hurts cause I was at a family birthday and there were lots of conversation. I just took an Advil so hope it ll help.

I am 22 years old and I recently quit smoking after about 6 years. After I quit, most of my chest pain that was most likely just from smoking has gone away. I am still having chest pain on the left side. I don't notice all of the time, but sometimes it is a dull pain. Other times I get a sharp pain. Every now and then I have it on my right side, but usually just the left. When I breathe deep I can feel a very dull pain. I get pain in my upper back as well on the left side. When I have the pain, it seems to pulse somewhat. What is going on?

Hi. I am a healthy 38 year old female. I have pain when I take deep breaths on the left side of my chest under my breast. The pain goes up my chest through my neck into my left shoulder only when breathing in deep. It feels like I have air bubbles in my chest. It is somewhat painful when taking a deep breath. I have no other symptoms. This started three nights ago. It seems to be off and on throughout the day. I don't notice it at night. Do you have any suggestions of what this may be?
