I’m getting a sharp stabbing pain in my left side of chest now I’m getting it on my right side too. I’ve been to doctor but they aren’t any help. I just don’t know what this could become

Well i would suggest a spinal evaluation with an MRI of the Cervical spine

This can be due to anxiety as well

Vitamin B12 deficiency,thyroid disorder,diabetes, etc can all cause such symptoms
