    sharp pain in chest- what is it?

    There is a sharp pain on the left inside of my chest every time I take a deep breath. It's only been since this morning, but what is it? I don't smoke or anything? It really hurts to breath deep, but only on the left. Do you know what it is?

    I am not sure what it is but I have the same things happen to me every now and then. They can be in my chest, back or sides. And when they happen I can't take a breath, I have to take short breaths because it is such a sharp pain.

    Sharp pains usually are caused by gas. Sometimes you might be short on potassium if you are a runner. Sometimes sharp pain is caused by a pulled muscle from lifting something heavy. Swimming will cause that really easily. If it gets worse see your doctor.
