During workout I started feeling a pinch in the left side of chest. Not pain just a pinch when I do specific moves. Should I worry for heart disease?

Don't worry Be Happy: If you can point to the area of the chest pain with one finger as you are describing, you most likely do NOT have pain originating from the heart. Cardiac pain is diffuse and is associated with nausea, vomiting, feeling light headed, sweating, fatigue and anxiety. You will likely have shortness of breath with exertion or even at rest. Keep exercising! Have fun. ...Read more

Skipping: Your heart is skipping beats. When that occurs, the average heart rate as determined over 15 seconds appears to be slow although that's artifactual. Avoid nicotine and caffeine. Minimize stress and get plenty of sleep. If it persists, testing such as a 24 hour recording, serum electrolytes, and an echocardiogram would be reasonable tests to further investigate it. ...Read more

I have a question about my heart. When jogging, should I have the feeling that my heart is working hard?

Likely exertion.: Jogging is a considerable amount of exercise. It might put strain on muscles, your heart, and your lungs.

This is to be expected, but if you get difficulty breathing while jogging, see your doctor to test your heart as this may be a sign of heart disease. ...Read more
