Do you mean an ECG--looking at your heart?

Yes my dad had heart problems please could you tell me what the Sharp pains could be

OK Caroline. The sharp pains are probably angina--heart pains--and if your doctor thinks your blood isn't circulating properly you may have congestive heart disease--a weakened heart. In addition to the ECG you need an echocardiogram and a stress test to better evaluate your heart. You may need medications like ACE inhibitors or betablockers to treat this
