Customer Question

I took 3 "calcium/magnesium + zinc" tablets, all at once, around 11:30 a.m. this morning. I had lunch (deli turkey on an English muffin, 4 carrots, 2 pieces of celery) and it was after that that I had some kind of attack. I thought it was a heart attack - I took some nitro under the tongue, didn't help. It is like I am having muscle spasms. I have a hiatal hernia and that is where the problem is. I got all clammy, couldn't stand or sit or lie down,it goes right through to my back, it eventually went away. I had another attack later in the afternoon wherein I got clammy again and brought up my lunch. I just took What should I do.

You need to go to ER right now

This could be a dissection or tear of the aorta

or pancreatitis

pain going through to the back is a bad sign. Go in NOW
