Every once in awhile i get really sharp pain. ive been having them for about 2 years and i havent gotton an attack in a long time and the other night it got one, it lasted for about 20 minuetes. it was so bad i could hardly move. what should i do? what is it? what causes it?
I have something like that also. I get a really sharp pain under my left breast, which im pretty sure is my heart. Well im going to the doctor on Monday so ill add that to my list. Actually, as im typing im getting the pain. It happens every few hours, so id think its vital to bring up to a doc.

It sounds like it could be heartburn. (Which actually has nothing to do with your heart at all.) If that's the case, your doctor can probably prescribe a medication for you. You should definitely see your doctor about it.

I'd agree with Griza -- that could be a definite possibility. What you're describing is vvery much like what heartburn feels like..
What's really helpful with things like this is to keep a little notebook for them to take to your doctors. Wrote down what happened, when, how long it lasted, and anything you may have been doing that day, including what you ate.
