I Am Having Sharp Pain In One Breast Similar To An Electric Shock; First Time Intermittent! Any Relationship To The Heart; I Have Secondary Pulmonary Hypertension. No Other Problems!

Answer

Sandy, please call your doctor. We are not doctors here, and can't say what the problem is. If the pain is on your left side, it could indeed be referred pain related to your heart. Where a person feels pain is not always where it starts, so we always encourage women with breast issues on the left side to get their heart checked. This could be something as simple as a pinched nerve from a tight bra strap, but you want a doctor who knows your medical history to help you sort out what is happening.
