I woke up with a sharp chest pain. Its fine when i lay back and breath normally but when i sit up, get out of a chair, slouch over, or anything to strain or use the chest i get a sharp pain. It feels sorta like a knife stabbing me in the middle(closer to the left side). I can feel the pain extremley when i try to lay back. When I take deep breaths and breath out i feel the pain or just sitting there uncomfortably, also when i am driving and stir i feel the SHARP pain. I have felt this pain before about 4 years ago when i was lifting weights..the one that you have your fore arms apart and pull the back together facing each other,but it lasted for a min or so. Also I have felt this sharp pain when i am driving and backing up and place my right arm on to the chair and my left i twist to look behind me, but that also has only lasted for a minute or so. This time it has lasted all day and certain things i do will hurt so bad its close to making me cry what is wronggg???

Have you been coughing a lot? You may have pulled a muscle or cracked a rib (like I did after a bout of bronchitis by doing nothing more than coughing quite a bit). Best to go to the doc and have it diagnosed. There's not a lot they can do though except give you strong pain killers. It just has to heal on it's own.

Heat packs on the area tend to ease it a bit to help you sleep. I was finding even turning over in bed was agony!

Go to the doctor.  My husband had pain that was stabbing (felt like he worked out too much) and his neck hurt.  It would come and go.  He had what he thought was indigestion for years before this.  Anyway, 3 weeks ago (at age 46) he had a heart attack.  He now has 4 stents.  I am sure it isn't that, but I would get it checked out, just in case.
Let us know what you find out and I hope you feel better soon.

Hello, please pay attention it could be your kidneys.  My sister just had those symptoms and she had a huge kidney infection, so if let go it can get ugly.  Hope you feel better, and keep a close eye on yourself..
