pain under left breast

I have been getting sharp pains under my breast.  Mostly under my left side.  Sometimes it feels like a shooting pain across them.  I think maybe I might have pulled the muscles while I was reaching up trying to lift something could that be possible or should I see a Doctor.

Dear happie2, These pains could be caused by a variety of reasons.  I would at least contact your doctor and describe the situation, they can ask questions and recommend whether you need to be seen for further examination.
