I usually get a pain on the left side of my chest. Some times it cab go for a few seconds, the others are sharp quick and constant. Is it just muscle?

In brief: Chest pain
If the pain is sharp in quality, then it is likely muscular. However, anytime you are having chest pain, we always worry about your heart until ruled out otherwise.
Blood clot can give you chest pain as well. Speak with your physician about the pain to rule out serious causes.
