All stabbing chest pains should be investigated for angina and heart attack by 12 lead EKG and other tests and am glad you have been given a clean chit regarding this. Chest pain aggravated by laughing yawning, moving in certain directions, stretching and deep breathing, goes more in favor of costochondritis. This causes pain and tenderness at points where your ribs attach to your breastbone. The inflammation around the joint area gives sharp pain on taking a breath. This can also cause tenderness on pressing the area which pains. An orthopedic doctor can diagnose this for you. Generally there is no cause. However it can be due to infection, blow, injury, or fibromyalgia. It usually goes away on its own. Otherwise it can be treated with muscle relaxants, and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs. You can apply a local pain killer gel or cream and avoid pressing on the area. You can also use a heating pad.
