chest pains
I am a 36 year old woman, live quite healthy, but recently I found that I get sharp pains in my chest below my left breast, but it feels like it is deep inside my chest where my heart is. I get up to five or six of these pains at a time, especially in times of stress. Can it be heart problems? I also get heart palpitations at times.

Dear Jenni
Yes it can be, I think you should go for a medical check up and at least an ECG and lung x/rays.
