Thanks for the query

Your age is not that for heart problems but as you said you smoke too although not that much plus use alcohal also and also going through stress. so all these factors can contribute to heart problem

Actually the symptom like chest pain is always take much serious especially left side due to presence of heart in the region. Therefore, it is always take as emergency and never ignored as some other conditions like anxiety and depression do cause such symptoms but the priority is always give to rule out cardiac conditions first.

Therefore, it is recommended to visit ER and have an ECG to rule out any heart problems
