For a while now I've been having this really sharp pain starting on the left side of my chest and goin to my arms and fingers. I don't get blurred vision or dizziness or anything. It feels like I can't breath and it hurts if I try and just makes the pain sharper. It will last for about 5seconds to a minute and it is extrememly painful. I end up with a sweat and lately the pain has been staying on my left side and just feels dull and crampy. It's been happening for a while now and would happen maybe once every couple of months but now it happens at least 3 times a day and it's been giving me a headache on the left side of my head too. What could it be:(

  • I get the same thing kinda, just without the pain in my arm and without the headache. But the pain i get in my side is the same. I also get this same pain in my back sometimes, it is almost like you are being stabbed by something. would like to know what it is.
