Spasms in heart area (left side of chest) -

Hi guys, I've been experiencing some small 'spasms' or what seems like them, where my heart seems to be - I can feel them with my hand at times and they only really last 2-5 seconds at a time.

This has been going on for maybe 2-3 days now and they come maybe once every hour or 2 hours.

I do seem to get small muscle spasms elsewhere however, I'm 25, male, and been pretty unhealthy lately. I've also been kinda stressed out too (I've read that emotional stress can trigger these).

I'm not overweight or anything but yeah, should I get myself checked out asap? I have been smoking SLIGHTLY for the past year only, ie 2-5 (MAX) cigarettes every 1-3 days. Would this be something to do with the heart?

Worried.

Isaac

what is important is your genetics, do u have heart problems at a young age in your family, when u eat is it just crap fixed in restaurants, fast food, prepacked junk in the grocery etc
do u cook your own food
can u say what percent fat and protein and carbs u eat i a day
where do u live and EXACTLY how much excessive
do u get FOR INSTANCE; people in New York City walk FIVE times what the average American does
good luck
