Occasionally when I start to breathe in, I develop a

Patient : Occasionally when I start to breathe in, I develop a sharp pain in my lower left lung (always the exact same place, and it has happened several times over the past two weeks). If I breathe shallowly, the pain continues, but if I take a deep breath, the pain increases momentarily then immediately goes away. This isn't a chronic problem, it's just episodes that last for a couple of seconds. I'm an 18 year old woman, I've never smoked, I don't have any history of respiratory disease, and I'm not taking any meds. I also haven't experienced any injuries to my chest. Is this something I should get checked out, or is it probably something that'll resolve itself?
Symptoms:  Occasional episodes of pain in lung.
