I am 20 year old healthy male. The only medical issue I have is glaucoma. However, I have been experiencing multiple split second sharp stabbing pain to left side of my chest, ( not under nipple). Sometimes they occur repeatedly other times they are random with hours, apart even sometimes days apart. I spoke with a D.O. and he seems to think it is due to poor posture, intramuscular etc.I agreed at first as I was studying for hours at a time for finals, but finals are over and the symptoms persist. I have had these pains intermittently for over a year.I have heard diagnosis any where from gerd, gas, gallbladder, inflamed pericardium,blood clots to the lungs, my symptoms are not like most who have e-mailed in. Not sure if this is serious matter and requires a visit to the Cardiologist???
