Q: What causes a deep, sharp stabbing pain in the chest?

For the past week I've had a sharp, stabbing pain that goes just below my breast bone through to my back. It mainly happens when I'm in bed, and never early in the day. I did consider that it might be indigestion, so I am being careful about what I eat and when, but last night I hardly slept and a painkiller doesn't seem to help it at all. Any advice would be gratefully received! xx
