Continuous Chest Pains While Resting
I am a 36 year old male with a history of fluctuating blood pressure with the highest reading at 161/104.  I had a problem with high blood pressure approximately one year ago which resulted in the left side of my face, my left arm and my left leg going num. I was hospitalzed and a CT Scan, MRI, EKG, etc. was performed with no results; JUST HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.
Presently, I am having continuous chest pain dead center of my upper chest.  It feels more like a bad cramping pain which peaks at moments, then eases off. I have slight pains flare up in my left arm, but does not last long. These pains are most apparent when I am laying down flat and resting. I am having slight feelings of nausea and sweating accompanied with loose bowel.
Presently, my blood pressure seems fine but my heart is beating abnormally hard.

A little family history for interest:  my grandfather died of a massive heart attack at age 55, my father died of liver failure at age 32, my mother suffered a heart attack at age 54.

Are these signs of a potential or existing heart problem?

Everything that you mention does put you at risk for heart disease and you may have a potential heart problem. While there are some atypical features to your symptoms, you should still be evaluated for heart disease.
