    Sharp Pain on left side of collar bone

    For the last 2 weeks I have been getting a sharp pain on the left side of my collar bone. It is sharp and goes in seconds. There is no regularity- one day I can have it at night, next day no pain and next day have it again at night. I have been seeing an endocrinologist for hyper thyroism but I am still undergoing testing. I have high blood pressure and a heart murmur. What can it be?

    It's impossible to diagnose this over the internet. It likely has nothing to do with high blood pressure or thyroid problems. If it's a problem then start with an orthopedic surgeon. Could be a shoulder or spine problem or something else.
