Hi Anon

Thanks for your question! 

You may have some kind of breast pain issue but you may also have a cardiac problem that needs medical attention. 

symptoms in both men and women:
•tightness or squeezing chest pain
•shortness of breath
•pain spreading to shoulder, arm or neck
•dizziness or loss of consciousness

There are several symptoms of a heart attack that are more likely in women:
•unexplained weakness or fatigue
•indigestion or gas-like pain
•pain between the shoulder blades
•recurring chest discomfort

Do you have any of the above symptoms in addition to the sharp pain? 

If you are still in any kind of pain, I would advise seeing a doctor immediately. 

Are you still in pain, Anon?
