    Hi SYL,

     

    I think part of your question got cut off, but here is some information about chest pain that may help answer your possible question.

     

    Sharp chest pain

     

    I do encourage you to see your physician about the pain.  While it may or may not be a sign of heart problems, it could be a sign of something else that needs to be treated such as pneumonia, a broken rib, or it may be something like a pulled muscle, etc.

     

    Best of luck,

    Monica M. Skidmore, MS, RD
