Making a move, while in bed, suddenly have a sharp pain under the chest, as if someone was cutting with a knife, extremely painful. Then it's over and no symptoms remain. Happened several times. Have not had it in quite a while.

Hi,

Thank you for your input,

These symptoms indicate a nerve problem and needs to be evaluated by clinical examination and tests like MRI and nerve conduction studies in some cases.

I hope this answers your question.
