Re: heavyness in my heart
This sounds like sleep paralysis to me. It's primary symptoms are a terrible feeling of dread, a heaviness on the chest and an inability to move upon awakening - but in some people the paralysis may only last a few seconds and might not even be noticed.

I had sleep paralysis as a child. Awful feeling! Thankfully I've only had one or two episodes as an adult. In the middle ages they thought SP was an attack by a demon or hag-with-a-broom-and-a-pointy-hat.
