Pain in chest

Hi. Now and then I get a sharp stabbing pain in the bone in my chest, in the middle, just above my breasts. It lasts a few minutes, hurst a lot when I breathe. What could be the cause of this? Sometimes months go past without it happening.

Hi Leigh
This can be caused by a spasm in the esophagus - do you get heartburn? If so, this can trigger the spasm and you may need to take something like Gaviscon for it.
