What causes chest pain, sharp, stinging nerve-like pain in upper left chest extending to abdomen? Brief but strong, occurring over last 3 days?

What causes chest pain, sharp, stinging nerve-like pain in upper left chest extending to abdomen? Brief but strong, occurring over last 3 days?

I have chest pain that feels like sting?

I have chest pain that feels like sting?

With effort?: In children and young adults a fairly good rule of thumb is that if the pain is random, brief (seconds to minutes) not related to effort and made worse by deep breathing or stretching it is probably not the heart but rather "chest wall" pain. In any case, you should see your doctor to make sure you are not overlooking something important. ...Read more
