chest pain

I am experiecing moderate chest pain but it is mostly in the middle of my breast bone.  The pain is sharp especially when i breath hard or burp and when i bent down/over.  It has been hurting for 2 1/2 days, preventing me from sleeping for more than a few hours at a time.  I don't think I had any injury that would have caused it.  Any help would be appreciated, since I have no health insurance to go to the doctor.

Chest pain should always be investigated.  I would hate to post advice here and find out that you actually had a problem with your heart.  While I understand you do not have health insurance, the hospitals and doctors will work out payment plans for you or have assistance programs.  If there is a hospital near you that falls under the Hill Burton act, they are required to provide a certain amount of free or reduced rate health care.  The United Way may also be a resource for you.
