I'm having sharp pains in my chest. It feels like it's my heart. The deeper I breathe, the sharper the pain. What could it be?
I'm sorry you're going through this! Any time you are having chest pain you should have it assessed by a doctor as soon as possible. It could be something as simple as a pulled muscle or costochondritis (an inflammation of the tissue around the sternum that can make breathing painful), or it could be something more seriously. Only a doctor can tell you after doing an exam.
