shooting pains going through my heart

Recently I have sometimes been getting shooting pains going through my heart. Each one only lasts a second.?
It can happen several times a day sometimes and other days it does not happen at all. I panic and think it might be small heart attacks I am having and wait for a big one to hit. Then it passes and I am fine again. I dont feel unwell or anything but just wondered if anyone else has had this same problem and if so what it is or at least have an idea what it could be.

It could be any number of things, but it is not a heart attack. Believe me, the pain stays with you. It does not come and go. It could be what afflicts me from time to time (thanks to all of my cardiac and cholesterol medication)... GAS! I'm a machine! In any case, see your doctor. It might be a good idea for him to recommend a cardiologist, just to be on the safe side. My GP once told me that he couldn't tell "jack" from listening through the stethoscope aside from heart rate and strength.
