pain in heart
sometimes it hapens, in left botom side of my chest, it slightly pains. It seems that its paining at small point.
It stops after taking 5-6 long breadths.
i went to family doctor, he tested my BP but its was normal.
He was saying that, everything is OK. It might be bcuz of AC in ofc or having cold food.

Chest pain which is in one small location is not usually heart related. If you can put your finger on the exact spot it is almost certainly not cardiac in nature which tends to be a much more broad pain covering the chest. The fact that it stops when you hold your breath also means it is not likely to be related to the heart, more so a condition with your lungs or rib cage.

Try looking up costochondritis which is an inflammation of the cartilage of the rib join to the sternum, it sounds very much like what you describe.

I hope this helps,

Jon
