i have been having sharp pains that last about 15 seconds then gone on both sides under my armpits at different times. i have been feeling a little out of it but it could be because i start thinking something is seriously wrong and starts an anxiety. its been going on for a about 4 days its really annoying and just worried would go to the doctor but have no insurance. i also have a heart murmur so thats makes me more worried Im a non smoker and am not a huge exerciser but do walk 2x a week about 3 miles. Just concerned and wondering if its really that big of deal and should i go to the hospital.
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment on the situation, though these are unlikely to be heart related. Possibilities that may need o be considered include neuro0muscular causes, infection, inflammations, postural issues etc. You may consider getting this evaluated by a primary care physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.
