About an hour ago I started to get a pinching and prickly feeling in my chest, mainly on the right side, could this be something wrong with my heart?

Maybe: It is hard to say what your symptoms are from given a short description and not knowing your age -- so the most honest answer is maybe. In general terms, however, heart related pain is often described as pressure rather than prickly, and often occurs in the setting of exertion.

Hmmm...: This is a challenging question given what is presented. A localized sensation of cold in the chest could be how your body interprets pain in the region--for instance, an erosion (sore) in the esophagus or stomach may be perceived in many ways by an individual. True loss of core temperature could be a thyroid issue or low blood sugar. I would first recommend an exam and possibly chest XR to start. ...Read more
