The other night I went to bed, as i laying in bed getting comfortable, I had a sharp pain in my chest and left side, it was so intense it moved up my neck and my jaw on the left side. it lasted about 5 mins. It would so away, but then come back. So I would say the pain came and go for about 10 mins. I'm not sure, what i should do about it?

What difference does it make.

In either case it is a serious enough symptoms that you need to see your doctor.

Please see a health care professional ASAP. This is not a symptom to take lightly.

You have to see a doctor. Hopefully, it was nothing. However, heart problems need to be diagnosed. Get an appointment to a cardiologist, and have some tests done. I hope you do not have a heart problem, good luck and start eating healthier.
