Something is causing my heart to hurt, kindly help me

I ve been crying and crying nonstop for the past four weeks or so, every day, often in public though I keep it very discreet. In the past twelve hours or so, I ve felt my heart , definitely my heart, actually hurting. A small, dull though almost sharp pain happens every minute or so, though sometimes subsequently twice or thrice within ten seconds. What is this? I am 21, though I look 18. I just want to make sure it s not permanent. No, I haven t been crying over the pain of my heart, literally, but I believe my feelings and the physical effects may have begun to take their toll. I m not randomly depressed. I m crying because my closest friend of many years and girlfriend, now ex-, is no longer in love with me.

I am 27 years old. the NP in my drs office told me a couple of years ago that I had a heart murmur. nothing was done about it. My dr. never noticed even tho I wore a holter monitor one night until the np said something about it. He gave me adipex last thurs. the past couple of days ive been really tired, kind of lightheaded, and a little bit of pain in my chest. when i just walk say to the kitchen at a normal pace my legs hurt kind of like ive been walking on them all day nonstop...I guess they just feel tired. I have been walking a mile a day since last friday..I didnt walk today tho cause I have felt so bad. Could it be from the adipex?

Hello, I ve been suffering from dizziness (all day), constricted pupils, nausea, heart palpitations, & shortness of breath. Recently I had some kind of event that I can scarcely described. It felt like my heart was fibrillating for about ten seconds & I almost lost consciousness. Could this be stress & anxiety? Or something more serious I should get checked out? I have a history of depression, anxiety, & mental illness in my family. Thank you for your help.
