Resting Pulse is 115

I am a 49 yr. old female.  I use to have high blood pressure but, it has been good for a yr.  I had two mild strokes 4 and 5 yrs. ago.  Now I have noticed (for several months) my resting heart rate is ranging between 110-115.  I do not drink coffee or smoke.  I am probably about 25 lbs. overweight but, it is evenly distributed over my body and not much in the stomach area.  I also experience severe headaches, dizziness and mild chest pain.  I also fainted about 6 weeks ago when sitting at my desk at work.  I mentioned my concerns to my Dr. and he basically ignored me.  From what I am reading and with heart disease so prevalent in my family I think he should do more than ignore me?  Should I be worried?
