    Just finished a chest/quad day at the gym, came home and decided to do some abs. I whipped out my ab wheel and as i was going down I get this sharp pain in my chest...it feels like someone is stabbing my in the chest...

    Anyone have any idea what this is...i get it every once and awhile but it was really bad just now...

    chest pain = see a doctor

    (probably nothing tho, so don't get worked up over it)

    Does it feel better when you curl up? And does it hurt when you take in a deeper breath or stand up straighter?

    You did do chest, so maybe you strained something.

    Yeah, it's nothing.

    Transitory benign chest wall pain. Brief and often sharp pain that is sporadic and not harmful. It occurs more often in children and young adults.

    Pinched nerve. Nerve damage caused by compression, constriction or stretching of a nerve. A pinched nerve can trigger localized and sharp chest pain.

    I've gotten this pain every once in a while for as long as I can remember. It's nothing serious, though it sure feels like it. It'll stop over time I'm sure. I haven't gotten it in over a year.

    And IIRC, things like heart attacks don't feel like a sharp pain...most men say it feels like someone is sitting on your chest and it is hard to breathe.
