Okay so my girlfriend told me she woke up and is having pain under her left breast what is causing this?

She told me this has happens once in a while but this time she woke up with a different pain, she is 14 almost turning 15 in 2 weeks, she wakes up and feels pain in between her chest and finds it hard to breath, but this time she said it was under her left breast, like she feels the pain in her heart, she told me it hurt really bad, and she told me it is hard to breath, and when she felt the pain in her heart she told me it felt like someone poked her heart with a needle or around it, and I am seriously worried, she told her mom but she said it's just because she is going to miss me since she is going on vacation for a month but it isn't that she told me the pain is different, and she felt like this since 7 am up to 10 am so basically for 3 hours. but a little after 10 like 10:14 she told me it started easing up a little then she told me it went away, but I doubt this isn't something normal or is it? Someone please help what could be causing this? Thank you.

Okay she's young so I'm not going to jump straight to a heart problem. However, that's not out of the question, and if it continues she needs to get checked out. It can also be a strained or pulled muscle, it could be that she was doing something, and lifted something wrong. It could be a rib, it could be her lungs. There's so much that can go on in the chest, that it doesn't necessarily have to be the heart. But really, if it happens again anytime today or in the next couple days, She needs to be respectfully firm with her mom, and say, mom this isn't because I miss my boyfriend. I think there's something wrong.

It could be a heart burn or she could have high cholesterol I suggest getting a blood test done. This pain may be an early sign of breast cancer if you find it soon enough it'll go away

It may be due to gaseous problem. Hyper acidity. But still it is better to contact the Cardiologist and should go for an ECG, Hope everything is fine. Ask her to Contact her doctor ASAP.

Pulled muscle. Heartburn, Muscle spasm, heart, anxiety, stress. She wants you to know how much she is going to miss you and it's affecting her physically... Could be anything.
If it hasn't stopped, occurs again, she should see the doctor asap. Her mom should be on top of this. Does she get pains often, any others?

Could be stress induced, get it checked out. You are a good BF, good luck! She'll be ok.
