At ramdom times in the day or night i get these very painful stabbing pains in my chest. It feels like someone is stabbing my heart. To try and make it go away i have to hold my breath or deal with the pain. Does anyone know what could cause this? (its not heart burn)

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Ischemic heart disease should be ruled out first.
ECG,Echo and ETT should be done as baseline investigations. Anxiety disorder is the most common cause but it should be at the bottom of list of causes
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
