Heart & Cardiology/ice pick pains in left breast

Question
Hi. Today as usual went to my gym. 10 minutes after I left I started getting ice pick pain in my left breast like someone was stabbing or rather poking at a spot . I have gotten them before but this time they lasted half an hour or so. I was feeling fine other than that continued powerwalking back to my flat. I took my no and pulse both excellent.  Had my annual echo or the heart two months ago.

39 fem /70 kgs/1.65
Hashimoto thyroiditis
mvp mild regurgitation since 19 y old.
exercise 3-4 times a week no history of heart disease in family

Should I freak out?
