Heart ache, constantly. Had congestive heart disease. What does it sound like?

My heart is hurting right above my left breast , and at times it s constant and I m short of breath until it goes away. I was told three years ago that I had congestive heart disease but the test was a failure because I was pregnant and the sticky things wouldn t stay on. It feels like my heart is physically being squeezed.
