Do you think my heart is sick ?

Two days ago, about 9pm my heart started to hurt really badly for about an hour. I couldn t take a deep breath because I felt a sharp pain. I couldn t lay down and the worse was when I lied on my left side. My pulse was 110 and my heart rate was somewhere around 132. After an hour it went to the normal heart rate. Yesterday before I went to sleep I felt the same pain again but it didn t hurt that much as before. Today it hurts a little bit when I breath. I had similar pains for couple of weeks but never for longer than 1-3 minutes. I m 16, not overweight , not smoking and I never had heart problems. Do you think I may have some heart problems or it s nothing to worry about?? Thanks for helping me.

I don t want to panic. About 2 hours ago I feel sick to my stomach and suddenly couldn t hear very well. My ears are not ringing but they got suddenly congested and I couldn t hear. I feel very disconnected still. I felt faint and I could feel my heart beating in my chest like palpitations for about an hour. This started after I had a sudden attack of heartburn. I tried to do an internet search but I can t find anything to describe what is happening to me. I also felt kind of sweaty but no chest pains so I don t think its a heart attack. Can heartburn cause all these other symptoms? This happened right after I woke up and all I had to drink was some coffee. I ve been having heartburn off and on for about 6 months.

I'm a 26 year old man who is admittedly out of shape. For about the past 24 hours I have been feeling discomfort in my heart, about the time I had an argument with a spouse. We have since resolved the issue, but I still feel the discomfort in my heart. Using a stethoscope I have I recorded my heart rate at 78 beats per minute, but it seems to speed up and slow down inconsistently. I take no medication. I'd like o figure out what this is and how to fix it.
