Thanks for the query

Such sudden onset and offset of pain in chest is usually due to muscular and skeletal causes, which may be due to trauma. Such pain aggravates with movements and deep breathing. Other such sudden sharp pain is called Precordial Catch Syndrome, which aggravates with inspiration or expiration and is usually on left side. In both cases pain killers help.

Remember, in Precordial Catch, there is no tenderness, where as in case of trauma, tenderness may be present. Anxiety can aggravate Precordial Catch. Avoid it. Simple exercise also help. Sometimes shallow breathing for a minute also relieves the pain and sometimes deep respiration relieves the pain in Precordial Catch Syndrome, on the expense of excruciating pain for period of deep respiration. Hope this answers your concern. Regards
