In brief: Not specific

Pain on the left side of the chest can be caused by many problems ranging minor ones that tend to get better on their own ( like a muscle strain) to the very serious and life threatening, like a pulmonary embolism or blood clot in the lung.
A doctor can sort this out based on the kind of pain, other symptoms, physical exam and maybe tests. If persists or severe best to see a physician
