Before I tell my story.
I'm 18 years old female.
So I hope this little information helps on finding out what's wrong with me.

----

Yesterday night I woke up and had a sharp pain around middle of my chest .
Every time I took a heavy breath . I had a huge sting! It really hurt.
It felt like two things collide together with pain!
So I calmly took small breath.
I think it took 10-15 mins before I calm down.
But I didn't took any heavy breath because I got scared since this never happened to me.
And went back to sleep.

Should I be concerned about this?
Any information helps
Thanks

I'd probably get it checked out - it could be something to do with digestion or heartburn, or some kind of spasm but it might be something else. Were you panicked at all, as in having a panic attack?

It gives great peace of mind to check things like this, especially if it was strong enough to wake you up!

Go see a heart doctor, sounds like an angina pain. Pain indicates something is amiss.

Panic attack!...If it happens while awake...get it checked out! You CAN get a cramp in your diaphragm...which is what controls your breathing!

It could be pleurisy. Relatively harmless, but do more research.

Have you looked at Costochondritis? I've had it since childhood, and it feels exactly like you described. Usually stretching helps, but sometimes I have to take ibuprofen. But yeah...you should have any chest pain checked out! Good luck! :-)
