Sharp Pain in Chest

The sharp pains are back.
If I didn't remember wrongly, the last time I experienced it was like a few years back, now I'm experiencing it again. In fact I've had a couple of "attacks" in the past week.. On CNY eve and 1st day of CNY itself I had 2 "attacks".

It's this pain that normally last for a really short while like 10secs or so, but it's really sharp and it's terrifying. You don't dare to move or even breath in or out. And once the pain is gone, you'll feel that the area still have a bit of aching..

I was going to see the doctor but decide to check if I can find any info on this scary pain first.

Found a website and the information on it is quite close to what I'm experiencing.

"It causes you to catch your breath, and you try not to breathe in or breathe out too much because it’s extremely painful either way. You take short, staggered breaths and try not to move. Finally, you work up the courage to take a sharp inhale or exhale. You feel a sensation similar to a bubble bursting and the pain is gone."

Have you experienced this before?
