Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     Your symptoms do not suggest heart disease – pain from the heart is oppressing, in central chest (and left), worse on effort, relieved by rest, may radiate to shoulders and arms, associated with sweating and so on.
So also, there is no specific clue to suggest lung or head...
     Pain only for a few seconds and sinking feeling are generally due to Anxiety. You will benefit from Psychological counselling. Psychiatric assessment and assistance is essential. ECG, X-ray and routine bloods tests should be done to exclude common problems.
     It is great that you stopped smoking. Keep it up...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
