Please help! I think I'm getting a heart attack.?

I got a really sudden chest pain two weeks ago in the middle of my chest. Then it moved to the left side and I've been having a hard time breathing. The pain gets really really bad when I'm at rest. I can't sit straight for long because of the pain. I'm always dizy and out of breath and I feel dehydrated at times even when I drink plenty of water.

I'm 20 years old, 5'3 and 128 pounds.

Could this be serious?

Update:

I've been having this pain constantly for the past two weeks. Do you guys think its a heart attack or a heart disease? Or anything to do ith the heart

    It could be serious. Call 911 or have a friend drive you to the ER. Better safe than sorry.

    A heart attack wouldn't last for two weeks. The only thing I could think of is angina (when part of the heart isn't getting enough oxygen and it causes chest pain, versus a heart attack where the oxygen-deprived part of the heart actually dies), however the pain from angina gets better with rest, not worse. I would recommend getting checked by a doctor.

    could be gas, but it is much better to be safe about it. Go to the doctor. an urgent care. ER. whichever, just go.

    When I feel that way I drink a CocaCola. It passes in a minute or two.
