Occassional heart pain

I am a 20 year old male and have occassional heart pain. It comes and goes after seconds or minutes. The pain is on the left side of the chest (where my heart is located) and is not that strong but quite obvious. I do not have any other symptoms. I do not smoke.
Is it serious? What is it caused by?

Re: Occassional heart pain

Is it a sharp or dull pain? Does it spread or stay in one area? How large of an area? Does it come on with exercise or stress? How often does it happen? Do you know what your heart rate, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, etc. are? There's a lot of things that can cause "pain" and some can be quite serious, others quite innocent. But these are the kinds of things doctors will look at to try and determine the source of your pain.
