Vague pain in side, yes, you are not my doctor, I should see my doctor, so what is this pain anyway?

When I am at rest I get this vague stabbing pain in the left side of my chest about 3 inches below my arm pit. It feels like I am being stabbed by a large pin buried in a pile of cushions. It happens almost every night and has been happening for years. I mentioned it to my doctor and he went "meh." Anyway, it still happens.
The pain is not related to breathing. It is not a cramp. Just a vague stabbing pain deep inside. It feels like a catch or pinch. Very odd.
I unconsciously hold on to my side when it happens. Sometimes it wakes me up. What is this, why is it happening? I am female, 52, and of normal weight.
