im 18..and for the last year and recently..i've been having a sharp pain on the right side of my chest..right below my shoulder, under the collar bone but above the breast. Or its right pretty much in the middle of my chest. it last for only about 30 secs to a minute. And gets worse when i breathe in to much, so i have to make my breathing shallow til its gone. I've looked it up and every site says its probably just Precordial Catch Syndrome, for a minute I was at ease, because it says its harmless and benign. But it states that most of it happens only on the left side of someones chest, when mine happen on the right side most the time. Is that bad and means i should see a doctor? or am i ok? Thanks
