Is there any chances of heart attack to a 14 year old boy ?

Is it possible for a 14 year old boy to have a heart attack? ok. I am 14 years old, 5.6 and 160 pounds. I get this feeling in my chest (little bit left of my sternum). Its not a pain, but i still feel it. It happens only occasionally. My grandma, uncle, and cousin all of bad hearts. My mom does not, however. Is it possible that these pains can be a heart defection? I am overweight, but its not all fat... and I am very stressed out (i know hard to believe for a 14 year old, but i am) and also, i get these pains when im nervous too if i get in good shape, do u think these pains will go away?

ok, to have a heart attack...... VERY RARE.... an esophagus burn (heartburn) is to be more likely. does it appear after have lunch? o after getting stressed? anyway, the best thing you can do is to lower you weight and do exercises, maybe you want to be revised by a doctor so you can feel more comfortable about that. also, the heart attack pain is different of what you feel, it is like being "hug" by something, like a constrictor pain, it's hard to explain because english is not my mother language.

No you probably don't have heart troubles. If it is after you eat or get stressed out than it is natural. Though it would be good if you worked out since you do have heart pain in the family and it could come along....many years from now.
