Backstory-- I am on bloodpressure meds since 7 months ago. BP is steady at 127/78.
I am experiencing good days and bad days. Good days I feel pretty good but my bad days I am not feeling good. My BP stays level but I feel lightheaded, nervous and tired. The stress in my life is very low and I am not a worrier. Sometimes I have pains in my left chest area and sometimes my chest wall feels sore. When I feel nervous it feels like someone scared the crap out of me and I need to lay down to get it to calm down. Most of the time when I am up and moving I feel pretty good but when I rest is when I feel the worst. Is this a heart issue or something else?
Realistically, this can not be truly determined via the Internet (which has serious limitations/restrictions).

What blood pressure meds are you taking?
Have you checked them to see what the possible side effects (which may/can occur at any time) are?
"Sometimes I have pains in my left chest area and sometimes my chest wall feels sore"
In general-only, chest/thoracic area (right, left, upper, lower, center, side) pain, stationary or radiating elsewhere, with or without accompanying symptoms, has various causes, cardiac and non-cardiac, which includes, but is not limited to, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and psychological/psychogenic.
Additionally, of the various types/kinds of heart conditions, symptoms may/can be acute (occurring suddenly), be chronic (occurring over a long period of time), come and go (be transient, fleeting or episodic) or even be silent.
Best of luck down the road of life.
