Q: sharp stabbing pain going through to back

i am a healthy 31yr old female,, for the past 8 days i have had this sharp stabbing pain,, just below the breast bone going through to my back,, it mainly occurs when im in bed,, although it has happened in the evening once or twice,, never occurs in the mornings,, afternoons. I did think it may have something to do with indigestion so i am being careful what i eat and what times i eat,, but last night i hardly slept and paracetamol does not touch it, any advice would be greatly recieved xx
