Check on chest pain: Chest pain is nothing to ignore! The potential origin of your symptoms includes: heart, lungs, mediastinum, esophagus, musculoskeletal, pericardium (sac around heart), pleuritis, bronchiitis, or referred pain from a remote site. Your doctor will be concerned about accompanying fever, blood with coughing, vomiting, shortness or breath, difficulty reclining, tenderness. Maybe just GERD but get eval.
Lots: The list is quite long from gynecological (cysts, infection, endometriosis, etc.), gastrointestinal (diverticulitis, appendicitis, irritable bowel, inflammatory bowel, etc.), anatomical (hernias etc.) among others.

I have been having these sharp zaps or shooting pains across the stomach for like a second a few times a day for past week what can cause this?
Gas: By far the most likely cause for a fleeting pain in this area is a gas bubble that causes some part of the intestinal tract to balloon out momentarily which can be painful. As soon as it passes, the pain is gone. Try some simethicone or charco-caps and avoid all foods and sodas and gum that can cause gas.See 1 more doctor answer

Many things: Unfortunately, many problems can cause pain in that area. It could be from the abdominal wall being strained in that area.

M 19, I'm having dull abdominal pain left middle side of abdomin. No sharp pains. What could be the causes? Happened when I bent over while mopping.
Constipation: May be your bowels, especially if constipated.
Could be gall bladde: It could be gall bladder or the hear problem. You better see a doctor to get check.
Some thoughts...: Abdominal pain has many causes. Far too many to list here. When you see your doctor, they'll ask you lots of questions: is it worse before or after you eat? Are your bowel movements normal? How long has it been going on? Any nausea? Does eating make it feel better? The "differential" for abdominal pain is so big that you really deserve a thorough history and exam to get to the bottom of it.
What would cause sharp knife like pains? It happens in different parts of the body chest, sides, and lower abdomen.
