Numbness of chest with sweating,dizziness,blurred vision

Patient

Q: About 6-7 months ago i woke up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat and felt a numbing sensation in my chest. I was dizzy and even tho it was dark in the room i could tell that my vision was blurry. I jumped out of bed and before too long everything was back to normal. I had never had anything like this before, but last night it happened again, except this time it didn't last as long and I wasn't sweating. Im 25 years old, and I used to drink a lot and I still smoke, although im try to quit that too. Could this be a sign of a heart problem or something less serious?
