General & Family Physician 's  Response
Breast itching is a separate problem. May be an allergic in nature, after scratching it may become red and painful. Apply antibiotic + steroid combination ointment + oral antihistamines + avoiding allergy producing substances or drugs, scratching, excessive sweating. Your breast itching will be alright.
For the sharp pain in the heart area - needs an ECG
Regarding the excruciating pain in your right shoulder it is no way connected with your heart problem. It is there for 3 years. Whether there was any injury prior to 3 years or not - Take X-ray right shoulder in AP and Lateral position to find the cause and treat accordingly.
Regarding your weight I think that 38 pounds is given wrongly
