Sharp pain in chest occurs when i make a sudden movement

From time to time, I get an extremely sharp pain in my chest (right near my heart). It hurts so much that I must freeze for a moment until it goes away. It occurs when I make a sudden movement and only lasts for about a second. I am only 16. Is this something to worry about?

DARLING! Do not worry. I had the same thing and I am 15. I went to see a heart doctor and my family doctor and everything and the result was... growing pains. It was like a sharp pain, you freeze and it goes away and you're back to normal. Eventually it went away AFTER I saw the doctor. At least I got the day off of school!

My right side of my chest suddenly began to hurt this evening. It feels almost like I ve pulled a muscle, but the sharp pains seem to be random and not when I make certain movements. The pain also seems to slowly be making it s way to the center of the chest. Is this common for pulled muscles in the chest?

So I have this occasional pain on the right side of my chest when I breath. This pain began to occur just a day after I got a cold. So far I ve felt this sharp pain within it for about 2 days now. It feels as if my lung is being poked with a needle. My mom is really scared about it and urges me to go to the doctor just to make sure everything is okay however I do not want to seek medical attention because I believe she may be overreacting. I do not have a cough at the moment but I do have a stuffy nose,fever, and a bit of fatigue. I ve been taking over-the-counter medication to reduce the fever (Tylenol). I was wondering if it could possibly be Pleuritis and if it is should I be concerned?

I'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.
