Welcome to Just Answer.

I am happy to help you.

There are different things that could cause the symptoms you describe.

~ heart related

~ spinal issue such as a pinched nerve



I urge you to get this checked out immediately.

Your doctor will want to rule out cardiac problems first.

If nothing is found there he might order other testing or try you on an anti-inflammatory medication.

Best Wishes to you,
