My pain isn't sharp, more like a cramp, just under my left breast. It tightens for a couple of minutes then relaxes, but it leaves me breathless.

In brief: It is a cramp --

I think you are experiencing a diaphragmatic muscle cramp or abnormal contraction -- it is unusual vagus nerve stimulation.
If it occurs frequently, you need to see a doctor to find out the cause which can be benign or serious --.
