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?

Hello Doctor, My name is Careyanne Johnson I am a 21 year old female. I am growing concerned with my well being because I have been experiencing some foreign symptoms. Starting with today the right side of my mouth has been partially numb for going on several hours now & I am having throbbing headache that comes and goes behind the back of my lower head & temples. Just a couple days ago my toes (on the right side again) were numb as well. I have also been having sharp, deep chest pains for a few months now. At first I thought it could maybe be heart burn but realized it is a much different ache. I think its safe to say the chest pains have grown more frequent because I m counting them every day now instead of once or twice a week. The only other symptoms I can think of is my ears will ring every now and then but still more so then I would think is normal. & I feel like I have poor circulation to my legs cause sometimes they feel stiff, however I also have a job where I stand without sitting for up to 8 hours a day. I have had Health issues in the past where I would become very light headed, my vision would go black, and I sometimes would faint. the fainting spells never lasted more then 5 mins. I was only unconscious for 30 seconds to 1 min. I have seen a neurologist and he conducted many tests, an MRI or brain scan being one of them. My results were all negative. The dr. did refer me to a cardiologist that I never went to. My fear is I may have a stroke or heart attack please help!

43 year old female, normal weight in good health. .Total hysterectomy done Dec. 2010, benign ovarian mass; 2 weeks after episode of PSVT, then next week chest pain and spasms. 1 episode of tachycardia of 140's bpm sustained for 1 hour. Preop ekg normal and new ekgs show slight t wave changes. Checked for PE, CT clear and lower ultrasound clear. ECHO 67% EF, normal nuclear and treadmill stress test, normal cardiac cath, carotid us. TSH was 5.4 at the beginning of Jan. but returned to 2.3 2 wks later. Taking Cartia 120 mg once daily and Metoprol 12.5 bid. Sent to cardio EP, who states that condition is due to low sodium levels and advised to up sodium. Sodium levels taken 3xs over this period have been between 133 -135. Intermittent slight chest pain continues, returning to work next week. Primary care does not believe it is due to low sodium levels, doing 24 hr osmality and sodium tests. Is there anything else we should look for?
