Hello. I'm a 28 year old female. I've been getting sharp pains in my left upper chest area, above my breasts. Right over my heart. Does anyone have any idea what this might be? I have a nagging cough (for about a year) that won't go away and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. The sharp pains last for a couple of seconds and go away. I'm usually sitting at my desk while they occur. I have a moderate stress level, nothing major. I'm physically fit and work out a few days a week and eat a healthy diet.
