I am getting a sharp stabbing pain on the right side of my chest. It only lasts a few moments, then goes away. What could it be?
I suggest you go to the emergency room or see your physician immediately. A sharp pain in the chest can be a symptom of heart attack in women or it could be a symptom of a blood clot or pneumonia. Only your doctor will be able to give you a diagnosis, even if it is something else completely. Here are some links that might be useful to you:
