What did doc say: What did your doctor say? In your age of 22, a fast sharp pain with movement could be due to chest wall pain, possibly a muscle strain. This is frequently benign, but symptoms like these are best evaluated in person by your physician. Based on the findings, a treatment plan can be developed to help you.
