Customer Question

Hi,
I am looking for some advise please. I am a very fit and healthy 42 year old woman. I can't remeber the last time I went to the doctors. I am not over weight, I do not smoke and only drink on special occasions. My problem is that for the last few days, I have felt as though someone is standing on my chest. I feel like I have to keep trying to catch my breath. My chest feels tight but I'm not in pain. I have no cold or cough. I do not suffer panic attacks and have never suffered depression. I am no more stressed than any other time . I woke up yesterday and felt very dizzy which lasted a day but that's not so bad today.
I had liposuction in May and my blood pressure was checked then and it was perfect so I'm a little baffled and would appreciate someone's thoughts. Many thanks
Julia
