Teen with chest pain

My 15 old daughter for the past two days develops sharp chest pain during the day. It does not last very long. Otherwise she is quite healthy and fit. She trains everyday - swims for 1.5hrs per day. She has also complained about her back being sore.

Dear Chesty
She may have a muscle spasm in her back or injured the small muscles between the ribs. Can also be caused by stress. IF she has no lung symptoms ( coughing, fever, etc) you can try something like Neurofen if she is not allergic to anything.
