Sharp chest pains when I breathe in

Posted , 5 users are following.

This is a strange one everytime I breathe in I'm getting these horrible very sharp pains that I have to sit down! It's only when I breathe in and they last for about 1 minute!! It's freaking me out I want to go to a&e but people are saying I don't need to! Now the nausea pains & wretching have started its scaring me what if it's a heart attack or something?
