About 1-2 times a week I get a stabbing pain in my left side under breast. It can be severe enough to not breath but only for maybe 10 secs. Normal?

Normal? No: While such a pain is not "normal", it is unlikely to be anything serious. Many pains like this simply pass with time and simple anti-inflammatories (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, acetaminophen) are worth a try. Signs that it should be looked into further include worsening frequency or intensity, associated cough, fever, shortness of breath, masses or swelling in breasts, local skin changes, etc. ...Read more

I have a sharp pain upper left side, under my breast. It really hurt after I eat.

Could be stomach: The GI tract is tough to diagnose. Symptoms in the abdomen can be from the GI tract or other organs, such as the spleen, liver, musculoskeletal system, etc. If it's obviously worse after eating, it could be acid reflux, stomach ulcer, pancreas-related.
