I experience a irregular mild heart pain that comes and goes

Sometimes I experience a irregular mild pain in my heart as in the pain comes and stays for about 20 secs and goes away, a min later it comes again. This process usually repeat itself for around 1 hour, the time frame may be longer or shorter. I think have this problem this since young about 17 yrs old. I am now 26 yrs old. Anyone has any clue about this? Do I need a doctor? This dull ache strikes usually 2 - 3 times a year, else I am healthy.

I m not overweight and have good bp 115/75. I don t know if the pain is due to anxiety or to something associated with my heart. For several years I have been taking 10 mg of Propranolol per day to slow down my heart rate. I have some minor afib. The pain, when I have it, is not sharp or intense. When I m physically active (gym, golf) I don t experience anything. Ideas??

I have had 4 stents put in June of 2010. I have a mild cold right now and I m experiencing pain on my left side breast area radiating into my armpit and sometimes into my back same area as the front. Not painful but uncomfortable. This has been happening off and on for the past three days, I don t know if I m being paranoid or if its related to my cold. I take anxiety pill because of stress but try to manage it without the pills most of the time. I am on blood thinners, high blood pressure pills and cholesteral pills in high dosage as there were two more areas that were an issue for blockage 60%. I have been perscribed 40mg a day to help flush the arteries of concern. My family doctor told me I will experience pains and tightness for up to a year after having stents put in. I m a little scared and I m looking for some expert advise to advise me of what I should do or if I m being paranoid.. Please help?

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I live in a cigarette smoking building--I am very allergic to it or sensitive--my heart jumps in my chest at times, then beats up to 120 beats a minute. I'm trying to move, but it's very expensive and I dont have a job. My grandfather died of a heart attack at 78-he was a chain smoker, so not a lot of heart disease on my mom's side. I didnt know my fathers side of the family. Actually my uncle died of a massasive heart attack at 48--Im 47--that was on my mom's side.
