Muscle spasm: You have two big flat muscles in the chest -- the pectoralis muscles. If they spasm, it causes very intense, sharp stabbing pain, which can go to your breast. Comes and goes, might be brought on by using your arm/back/abs on that side. Massaging your chest (just like rubbing a charley horse out of a calf spasm) can help. If this occurs with exercise, eating, strong emotion --> check out heart.
