I have been feeling heart pain, what am i supposed to do?

I have been feeling heart pain, what am i supposed to do? PLEASE HELP!!?
over the past month i have been experiencing heart pain and it skips beats alot to, for the past four nights it's done it everytime around the same time, and it's always the worst then. during the day it does it sometimes but not as much as i've noticed at night when i'm trying to go to sleep, i smoke pot but not a whole lot, also i've had pain on the left side of my head and the upper left side of my neck( i don't know if that has anything to do with it), i have read about heart palpitations but i'm not sure thats whats happening because that usually only happens once a day and this is happening pretty rapidly, my dad has heart burn and anxiety crap which is gay and i've always hoped to avoid both of those things, btu i don't if i have anxiety or not and i'm not sure if that could contribute to whats happening or not, and i think i do have mild heart burn which could just be a combination with my heart skipping beats, i'm 16 and really not sure what to do. please help!!

It's nothing to worry about probably. If you're really concerned, than you have to go to the doctors, but I doubt it's anything other than some mild heartburn. It probably happens at the same time every day because you most likely eat at the same time every day. The neck pain could be caused from anxiety. As for the head pain, it's most likely the pot screwing around with your memory a little.

Every few days, I get this... spiralling numb pain on the left side of my back, just around my shoulder blade . It feels like someone is taking their hand and digging their fingernails into my back in a circular pattern, and it also feels like pins and needles. Today, at work, it started doing that, and it started hurting a lot. Then, I started sweating and I felt really hot, and the pain got so bad that my vision started going a bit blurry and I couldn t focus on what I was doing. It started feeling like there was something wrapped around my body, pushing on my chest from all directions, and restricting my ability to breathe. I tried to ignore it and concentrate on what I was supposed to be doing, and it went away after about twenty minutes, although the pain/ numbness in my back keeps coming back. Is there something wrong with my heart or my back? I wasn t stressing myself at work, or doing anything strenuous. I was counting stock.

hi. i ve just woke up from the most terrifying experience of my life. It was only a dream, but I feel overly confiident that I could ve died during this experience. In my dream I was hanging with my friends smoking when all of a sudden I felt a very real, and painful numbness I suppose in my head. This came and went in my dream and caused a lot of alarm. Everytime this happened, maybe a total of 4, I couldn t speak,and I went partially blind. and my thoughts felt very fuzzy so it was impossible for me to communicate this issue with my dream buddies. Anyway on the 4th time this happened my heart began to beat completely out of control, I would estimate 200 bpm. It was incredibly intense. This is when I woke up. my heart was still beating way out of control.I looked at the clock to see that i d only been sleeping for 30 mins, but it d felt like days. I am still shakey from this scary experience, as i ve never encountered so much pain or had such a fast heart beat. My heart still hurts. Could I have died of heart failure? what happened?

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
