Could I have a serious heart problem ?

I m a 21 year old male, a little bit overweight (Maybe a stone or so) but relatively fit. Just recently, I ve been getting an electric pain in the left side of my chest which lasts anything from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. I went to an NHS walk-in centre today to get checked out and the nurse performed an ECG . She looked at the results and said they were fine. Then, a few hours later she rang me back to say that there s nothing to worry about , but a doctor s looked at the results and is a little concerned. The way she put it was my heart beat was very slow (Getting slower when I breathed in) and had some irregular blips . I need to see a GP immediately and if I get any more pain to go straight to A E or call ambulance if it s severe. Of course my GP will be able to tell me more, but are these symptoms characteristic of any well known condition, or is it unlikely that I have anything to worry about. I just want to put my mind at rest tonight. Thanks.

Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.

What could this be? It only tends to happen when I have alot of stress on my heart. For example : I hardly got any sleep today, my dad got rushed to the hospital, my mom caused my anxiety to sky rocket etc. I went to lay down after talking to my dad in the hospital, and my heart started racing really fast, but I wasn t breathing hard or anything. Is this serious? Or only because of Anxiety? Please help, I m really worried.
