Left Chest Heart Pressure / Dull Pain

I am a 25 yr old male with pressure and dull pain inside my left chest (feels like where my heart would be) now for almost a week.  It feels as like my heart does not have the room beat freely as if someone was squezzing it.  This pressure is constant throughout most of the day.  When I lay down I have a hard time breathing and feel like I cannot get enough oxygen into my lungs.  Also at times I feel my left arm twitch or become tingly, like it is not getting enough blood (arm falling alseep).  Over the last 7 yrs I have drank alcohol pretty heavily on the weekends, but have slowed down since graduating college in may 2006.  Whereas, now I would drink once a week and not as heavy.  I am not overweight and in pretty good shape.  Can anyone help me with what this can possibly be and also how serious?  Thanks
