My heart hurts.I am short of breath also

I am having pain in my heart...literally my heart hurts...I am short of breath also? I started feeling like my nose was plugged...like my sinuses were clogged up last Monday. And I have been out of breath, fatigued and my body aches. I know it sounds like the common flu, but this is much different then before. I have been having pain in my chest right under where my heart is. Its sharp when I am doing things and my heart starts racing. On top of that, in between my should blades almost right behind my heart (chest cavity) it hurts like hell. I am 25...well, 26 today and have never felt anything like this before. At first I thought maybe pneumonia or bronchitis, but I have suffered from both. My main concern is how heavy my chest feels. Like my chest is sunken in and it hurts a lot. I am winded easily and fresh air does no better. Any suggestions? It typically only happens when I am up and around. That s why I haven t freaked out and went to the ER. By the way, I am no idiot..... I called the ER and asked them if I should go in or not....guess what they said...I am better off setting up an appointment with my family doctor.

My dad had a kidney removed because of cancer, while recovering in hospital he had a heart attack, they diagnosed him with heart disease and arteriosclerosis. He was released from hospital monday but since he has been home he has had loss of vision in right eye cannot feel his right leg at most times and when he can he says it feels like it is bursting. Today he kind of passed out and twitched a little out of nowhere for a few seconds. What should we do? in regards to diet any home remedies that relieve pain or should we call an ambulance? I need help!!!

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination.
I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
