Hi,

Do you have soreness,stiffness on neck?

Heaviness in chest?

Have you monitor your blood pressure?

Duration of symptoms?

Any other medical illness?

Are you taking any medicines?

Thanks.

Waiting for your reply.

Tension in neck, headache, slight heaviness in chest. Symptoms for 5 days. No illnesses. Some acid reflux. I take medicine for it. I only take hormones. Have not monitored blood pressure. Never had blood pressure or cholesterol problems. My heart seems to race and just feel uncomfortable especially when I lay down.

Hi,
Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.

As per your description,your symptoms are suggestive of Ischemic heart disease.

And an urgent medical attention is warranted with heaviness in chest,heart palpitations,pain in left arm and jaw along with shortness of breath.

So i suggest you to visit ER and your blood pressure and EKG must be checked ASAP for prompt treatment accordingly.

You should take OTC Aspirin in the meantime.

I'm here to discuss further queries until you get satisfied withour conversation.
