Suffering from chest pain, could this be a hereditary ?

Hi, I am 39 years old, female and a smoker. I have recently been having chest pain on the right side when I lay on my back or left side. Also while walking around the pain is sharp when I breathe in. I took ibruprofen and it has let up a little. I have severe allergies and a lot of mucus, post nasal drip, congestion etc... I also fell back in March and landed on the edge of a concrete stair across my back. No bruising and the xrays reveiled nothing broken. No bruising, Very painful though and couldnt touch without pain. Im not sure if thats even relevant to the chest pain I am having now? I have a family history of Heart disease , as my father has a massive heart attack and died at age 47. My older brother has a rare heart condition that I cant even pronounce . I was checked with an EKG , etc.. Nothing showed.

I have had chest pain in my lower left lung on and off for the past 6 months or so. Before this I had pneumonia which was misdiagnosed for 6 weeks and ended up on three courses of antibiotics. I was just wondering what the chest pain is. I have lost my faith in my doctors due to being misdiagnosed for so long and would just like a reasonable answer.

My parents brought me to the emergency room because I was having chest pains, shortness of breath, I was getting tired very easily (after taken a couple steps), and having severe body sensitivity to touch. They made me go through the triage center and when they saw my heart rate was reaching up to 146 they admitted me. While in the ER my heart rate was maximum 186 and the doctors there could not find anything through the EKG, X-rays, and all the other tests they had administrered to help them find something to explain my rapid heart rate and tiredness. Well, I was admitted as an impatient the next day after going home and having diarrhea and vomiting all night. I stayed in the hospital a total of 3 1/2 days and they could not find anything wrong with me internally, from what they could see.

My general doctor who is also a cardiologist has already done a 2D echo-cardiogram and has put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours, hoping something would show up. the holter monitor showed that my heart rate goes up to 190 and he is so puzzled as to what it could be. He is thinking I have had this my whole life but only started noticing these symptoms now. He now wants to admit me in a hospital that specializes in cardio issues and is already consulting with anther doctor but they have not made a final decision yet as to what tests they want me to do and where they want to send me.

What could this be?
