Someone please help me... Heart attacks, Strokes Cancer. both run in my grandfather has had plenty them, and my uncle has had 2 strokes.

I am so sorry to hear that but I think you should go to the doctors if your not wanting to go to the ER. The tingling sensation is a mild sign of a stroke, the alarming part is when it starts trickling down to other areas of your body. If it was just between your breast, under your breast, then I would advise you to check for lumps but also get a mammogram (my mom had breast cancer). It's a sign of your bloodstream not getting enough oxygen (clogging your airflow in your natural blood flow in your blood arteries). People don't even realize that they are having a stroke (especially when it's mild) but it will get worse if you don't get that checked out. You might also take an aspirin to help thin your blood and really need to focus on getting healthy (in terms of your weight, I'm sure it's hard but you have to have the will to live a healthier life). If you need more advice, just let me know and I will do what I can. Take care of yourself, your life is worth living.
