chest pains

I would like to have some advice - For the last 6 months I do experience chest pains - I have to stand still, it feels like my heart contracts &  relax on the left hand side of the heart and then my left arm gets numb! I cannot breath in or out. It lasts for about 15 seconds. Very strange feelling, do I need to go for a check-up?

Yes, it sounds to me as if you are getting angina. You have to have an ECG and probably further tests too. Let them check your cholesterol levels also
