Chest Pain in The Left Area


Q: So for the past three days I've been having this really sharp stabbing pain in the left area of my chest. It hurts when I take a deep breath in and it's like something feels like it's locked up. I used to have this happen when I was younger but thought nothing of it. I'm 18 now and since this has been happening again, it's got me worried. It usually hurts through out the day and ever since this all started, I've been getting headaches after I eat. What could be causing this and is it anything serious that I should get checked? Thanks so much!
