Uncertain it could b: i'm uncertain it could be abdominal. In your abdomen you have intestines, but there are other organs near to it. There is also a problem with gas in your large intestine that can cause I assume the emergency room did not find any heart problems. You need to go into this fully with your physician and look for things on the left side of the chest and abdomen that may be causing this type of problem. ...Read more

See your doctor: An electrical shock with these symptoms means you need to have an EKG done to check the electrical system of your heart.

When i take a very deep breath and breath it out at the end of expelling i feel a catch almost like phlegm and a slight wheezing feeling.  any ideas?

Wheezing: With such a sparse history its hard to say much. If you are (or were) a smoker then you may have some mild (hopefully) emphysema. If you have had serious exposure to a dusty environment then you may have some damage to the small bronchioles of your lungs. Obviously,it concerns you so perhaps a visit to an internist or a pulmonologist is advisable. ...Read more

Allergy: You might have a chronic allergy. We produce mucous to trap dust, bacteria, virus and crap in the environment so we can expel it. If the mucous is colored you have have an infection as well. You might also need to "lubricate your wind pipe". A very dry environment makes mucous. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and muconex plus a humidifier. Clean the humidifier every day. Also, get an xray. ...Read more
