In brief: Maybe

You should have a complete evaluation by a cardiologist to determine the extent of your risk factors, and then have a plan that reduces those risks.

In brief: Unlikely

Unlikely at your age unless you have a strong family history.
However, the cause of your symptoms should still be investigated, as there may be something that in the long run may be harmful.

In brief: Depends

What's "inappropriate sinus tach?" at age 25 life's exciting and the heart can go bounding from time to time.
Occasional sharp chest pain in a youngster that feels like a knife when you breathe in is usually "stitch" from a folded pleura, relieved by inflating the lung to the maximum; it's not heart-related. Life's too short to worry without reason; insist your physician give you solid answers!
