Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

Sharp needle like pain on right side of the chest and occasional thump on your left side,these are not the features of a Heart attack or an angina or anything predisposing you to have heart attack in future.

There is a very long list of conditions that can cause these symptoms.It could be simply due to stress,anxiety or it could be musculoskeletal pain.

Pain related to heart does not present like this,so you shouldn't worry about it.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
