Is there something wrong with my heart and breathing ?

There's something wrong with my heart and breathing.. Can anyone help me? So, my problem is, that from time to time, I suddenly feel very tired, like I ran up the stairs. This time, my pulse is exactly 85, I always measure it and get the same results. I feel like I have less air, but I m not suffocating, or anyhting, just feel like I need to breathe through my mouth to get more air. If it s night, I m trying to be in a curved position, like a baby in a mom s womb . This way I feel better. If it s daylight, I really need NOT to sit up straight, as it s worse. I also feel a pressure at my chest , as I were swimming in a lake or pool. This disease occurs around 2 times monthly, usually after I eat or if the weather will change. Only these are the facts I managed to compare it with. I m not sure why this is and what causes it, actually. Hope you will give an answer! Thanks, anyone!:) P.S.: I often have hiccups, usually after every meal or drink.. :((( Oh, and I forgot to mention, that I m 22 years old, I m 1.63-1.64 m tall and I weigh 51-53 kilos... Another important detail is, that I don t smoke and I usually eat healthy food.. Thank you for the answers, I m curious before going to the doc :) I also forgot to mention, that I was 21 days late at birth and not my head , but my butt came out 1st.. :(

Two possible reasons would be heartburn or anxiety attack. I would see a doctor to rule out anything more serious.

If my heart hurts when I breathe, not while I m active, just laying down, though it gets more intense as I get more active, is there something wrong that I should get looked at? Sometimes it has really sharp pains. I don t smoke or drink and I m 20.

Hi! Sometimes, even when I am just sitting, I can feel my heart beat really hard and it hurts. I can feel about two beats, and the it dies down. It feels as if something thick is passing through my heart and it has to pump extra hard to get it through. It also makes it hard to breath when this happens. Whats wrong?
