A very slight bruising on the chest and sharp pains on one side

I went to bed last'night and I noticed a very light bruise on my chest just above and between my breasts, but this morning it is gone. During while I was trying to fall asleep there was a very sharp pain between my shoulder, bellow the armpit but above my breast. If I breathed too much it worsened, and if I slowed my breathing it still hurt. My heart felt like it was beating really, really slow and my whole chest felt heavy but the pain was only on my left side. I searched a little before coming here and the only thing that was close said I had an anxiety attack, I have never had one before.

Anxiety affects everyone different so perhaps you won't have any more problems again. Not worrying about it helps if you just had a minor anxiety. issue. See how it goes but once is pretty minor.

If your chest feels heavy you should report it to your doc as that is what a heart attack feels like.

In my Canadian city there is a healthlink number I can call if I have a health question. A nurse takes the info and advises what to do. In your case it would be advice whether or not to go to the hospital to be checked out.
