Sounds like anxiety Leanne. You don't mention your age, but I would guess from your e mail you are under 40. I very much doubt from your description that there is any problem with your heart.
The palpitations sound very benign and the sharp pain "near your heart" does not sound like heart pain at all. If in doubt see your doctor but my impression is that you do not have a heart problem, and that your symptoms are likely to be related to anxiety.
