Customer Question

I am with a friend who is a male age 48, he's experiencing: shortness of breath and trouble breathing, blurred vision, dizziness, lower pulse than normal, streaks of light in his vision, and a pressure in his head that radiates from the tops of his ears forward. Also, he is clamy. What could this possibly mean?
