Hello, I am a 26 year old male, 5 10 145 lbs, no major medical history. I have had an aching pain in my chest wall for several weeks. It only aches intermitently, and when it does I can cause it to not ache by changing my posture. What might be causing this? Is this serious?

Chest pains and other problems. Could this be a serious health concern? I ve been having sharp chest and back pains. Occasional feeling of being light-headed. Plus, tingling/ numbness in extremities. Is this a heart problem? Scared and confused. Serious answers please.
