What causes stabbing pain in the chest?

I have been having stabbing pain in my chest for a while. It is only in my heart and it doesn t matter what I am doing, the pain is always there. It does get worse if I bend over or do activity. I am on Voltaren gel and Voltaren meds. I had an EKG done and it was normal. I am scheduled for an ultrasound, chest xray, blood work, and a stress test. I have had this problem since I was a child, but it was never this bad. The pain went away quickly and it was never there all the time. It was just a once in a while kind of thing. What is wrong with me and should I be at the ER right now?

Hello,

You should do the examinations that the doctor has said, but I do not think that this pain has to do with a heart problem based on the way you are describing it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Anila Skenderi, General & Family Physician
