Am I having early signs of a heart attack ?

I am 23 years of age (not overweight ) and I ve been having stabing-like pains on the left side of my chest right under the brest tissue for over a month now. Could that be early signs of a heart attack? or anything related? Keep in mind that i do not have shortness of breath, numbing in the left arm, nausea , headaches, dizziness , confusion or any kind of symptom that comes with a heart attack. I do not have irregular heart beats, but i do get panic attacks... Could it be that im just stressing too much?

Uhh...I had some questions about heart attacks Im a 19 year old female. For about two weeks Ive been pretty worried about a test. I just finished the test though...And dont feel worried anymore. Well I take that back...I DO feel worried. Ive had a strange pain in my left side...Sometimes in the right side.(As of....Yesterday and all through the night on and off).The pain isnt aweful...Just irritating I guess. My stomach is making lots of sounds,My knee feels like it has pressure in it(sometimes),my bottom jaw feels like it has pressure and my tooth hurts(Also sometimes). My period did start earlier that it should have...So I assumed all was due to stress. Could it still be stress? I admit I havent been eating as well lately(junky things)..But now Im trying to drink more water again to get back into my health kick. I dunno...I figured if it was a heart attack it would have hurt worse or Id already be in the hospital...

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
