At your young age, chances of heart attack (MI) are very less. However, please get your cholesterol test done and ECG done. Based on these 2 simple tests, a doctor can tell you if you are fine or not. Don't worry, the chest pain on your left hand side can be due to many other reasons as well. Cheer up.

My grandfather had a heart attack in his thirties and I'm wondering if i have the same problem. I'm very concerned about it.
