Such symptoms on the left side of chest, should always be checked for cardiac origin, So firstly get an EKG done. However It seems a muscular pain or just related with Stress and anxiety issue. This condition is called as Costochondritis.It is an inflammation of the cartilage joining ribs to chest bone .Other reason can be pull in the muscles or ligaments of ribs..
So a proper physical examination is must along with EKG ,along with Chest X-Ray. See your Physician, for further follow up.
