I have high cholesterol or heart problems or i dunno can some help me out?

My heart feels like its being squeezed and my arm goes numb on the left side.? Ok, so first off im 20, and overhealthy, im a little over wieght but not severe. I do eat fast food a lot and heavy foods sometimes. This sensations have only occured as of late, What happens is it feels like my heart is being squeezed or is trying to hard and my left arm seems to go numb but doesnt swell up. I was in another country when this happened with a higher altitude so i thought it might be that after a couple days this sensation when away. I thought maybe i was going to get a heart attack, after eat pretty much heavy stuff. It went away after a couple days and that was a month ago, so i thought it might be the food so i cut down on it. Now a couple days ago i got the same sensations back, and i didnt eat that heavy, its been 2 days and the feeling hasnt gone away. I dunno whats wrong with me do i have high cholesterol or heart problems or i dunno can some help me out?

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
Regards,
