Pain in left side/chest

I've been having some pain in my left side/chest area. Right under my left armpit area, maybe an inch past where my left breast area ends. It's on and off all day. About every 30 - 120 seconds it'll be a sharp pinching feeling, and last for 3 - 15 seconds.

The only thing I'm concerned about is if it's something that would precede a heart attack or stroke - or anything serious. It's been like this for about a week. I just got over a cold, which really brought out other heart symptoms I've been having for months. A few weeks ago I had this same pain, although not as frequent or painful. I took cayenne pepper for a few days and it went away, and I stopped taking the pepper.

Any thoughts are well appreciated.

Thank you!

Re: Pain in left side/chest

It's very rare for sharp pain to be cardiac related.
