Stinging pain in left breast nipple part. What can it be? The reason behind it?

Many possibilities: There are many possible causes, so you should see your Dr to help sort this out. Since breast’s are usually not the exact same size, your bra may be rubbing/irritating one nipple more than the other. Sometimes laundry detergent or soaps/shower gels can also irritate the nipples. If the soreness is only around the time of your menses, then it could be hormonal. Sometimes there can be an infection.

I'm experiencing stinging pain, left breast nipple part. It feels like something is pulling or stretching a nerve or something. Suddenly come and goes?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. If you have large breasts, it may be pulling on a nerve. Left breast usually hangs lower than right which may explain the symptoms in left breast only. You may wish to try a different bra that provides more support.
