Im sorry to hear about your symptoms.
There are number of conditions which can cause this sort of pain and ill list some of them below for you,
Heart Disease - heart disease is a less likely cause in the current scenario but i wouldnt discount it at all. Simply because you are of the female gender and heart disease can present in an atypical manner in females. this has to be ruled out under all circumstances in patients with central chest pain such as yourself. This can be easily ruled out with the help of a EKG and if needed a stress test as well.
GERD - Another possibility is that of acid reflux which too can cause the sort of pain which you are experiencing. This cna cause a sharp pain as well as heartburn, burning in the chest as well as a metallic taste in the mouth. This cna be diagnosed on a clinical examination and treated with simple lifestyle adjustments. The usual treatment is with the help of simple OTC drugs like prilosec.
Oesophageal Spasms - Sometimes the sharp pain can be due to a spasm of the oesophagus itself. this can be intermittent in nature and resolve after severe, sharp pain after a few minutes. The usual treatment is with the help of a simple drug like calcium channel blockers or even nitrates.
Now i would suggest that you do get an EKG done even though the chances are low that this is heart disease but it is always better to be safe than sorry. Secondly you can try using prilosec which might be helpful in this case.
