What do you mean that I must go to hospital right now?

I mean you have to go get checked at the hospital

what I paid for is just to be told that I should go to hospital right now and I need more explanation concerning what might be wrong with me because my blood pressure is normal based on the figure given to you. Kindly revert with more details
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

no problem.

You have risk factors for heart disease like high blood pressure

This chest heaviness could be something like acid reflux or a muscular issue
However, there is no way to be sure online. You need to get checked in person

I have nothing to rate you because this response is not what I was expecting.I needed a medical explanation ! You have to specify that client with conditions like mine should not log in to ask questions because you cannot really see them personally to give reliable advise on line. Thank you for wasting my time and money !!

I am still expecting your response!
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
