Hello,
A stinging pain on the left side could be due to serious and nonserious causes both. The common causes are muscle strain, sprain, pleurisy, asthma, costochondritis.Since you have received an injury it could be a bruised or broken rib, and panic attack. Pain on left side of chest can be an indication of heart attack if accompanied with sweating, shortness of breath etc.There are many other things it could be so if it persists you should seek medical help. A clinical examination and workup will definitely help.
Best luck and regards!
