Go to the hospital: Symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, "feeling of impending doom". If you do it is potentially life -threatening . Go to the hospital.

Yes & no: This is a separation between the cartilaginous portion of your rib (front portion) and the boney portion (back portion) like a broken rib. The surgery to put them together is more painful than just letting it heal on its own. If still painful after 3 months seek out a thoracic surgeon. However, be carful as the "fix" requires an incision and a plate as painful than letting it heal by itself.
A 29-year-old female asked:

Nerve pain likely: Many things -- most likely compression of a nerve in your thoracic outlet or neck. Unlikely to be heart disease in a healthy person of 29. Definitely not a stroke. More likely thoracic outlet syndrome, or cervical nerve compression, or compression of your nerve by some other mechanism like a tumor -- see a doctor.
