I have been having "episodes" of intense stabbing pain for about a week now. It is always in the exact same spot. It is right at the top of my left rib cage - it seems too low to be considered chest pain, but too high to be abdominal pain. It is a sharp stabbing pain that comes on unexpectedly, is at its worst when I am inhaling, lasts a couple of minutes and then goes away. The pain radiates to my back in the same spot. I've been having around 2-4 "episodes" a day for a bout a week now. I am 24 year old female with no significant problems in my medical history. Should I be worried?
