The stabbing pain was extreme but only lasted for a few minutes. This morning, my neck and left side of chesk (over my heart) feels uncomfortable. I ve also been diagnosed recently with Lyme Disease ...could this be part of it? or what is causeing this?

Welcome to healthcaremagic,
In lyme disease also some symptoms like you had occurs. They may persists for a longer time also.
Otherwise also do not ignore the symptoms.
Investigate yourself for any other ailment.
