Sharp pain under left breast

Hello, maybe this is nothing and I am over reacting but for the last 2 nights after supper I get a sharp pain under my left breast that spread to my rib that only lasts 3 or 5 seconds the first night but the second night the pain lasted longer for maybe 2 mins each time.  It seem to hit approx every hour until I go bed but last night it happened in the middle of the night also.  After it happens my heart beats really fast...........the first couple of times it spread to my back.   What could this be and what should I do if it happens again tongiht.

Thank you, cindy
