What can cause sharp pain left side of chest, no heart problems, ?

Ribs, lung: It sounds as if you have had detailed cardiac testing and all normal.

How can ADHD medication cause sudden death in a person who is healthy and without heart problems? I don't understand how this is possible.

CNS stimulant: This drug block the reuptake and increases the release of norepinephrine and Dopamine in extra neuronal space. As in any potent CNS stimulant, if abuse, the result can be catastrophic. Use it as directed by your physician. Now be careful when you combine ritalin, Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and methylphenidate as I can see in your medication. It's dangerous.
