I have this sharp pain every once in a while. It goes away after 10-20 seconds when I take short breaths. Is this something serious?

In brief: Sharp pain

Without knowing the location of the pain, it is hard to answer. Presuming that pain is located in chest, you need medical attention if pain is persistent.
