You need to immediately have someone take you to the ER.

There are serious possibilities here.

One is transient mini strokes [TIAs] which can become full blown, if not already a stroke.

Another is heart pain [angina].

both can wind up being very serous.

Don't wait on this.

  • These symptoms are rather vague and less likely to indicate an emergency
  • It will help to know your age and gender and any other medical conditions you receive treatment for, such as diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol
  • If you are a young healthy person with no significant medical problems, this will very unlikely to represent a serious emergency that would require you to immediately go to the ER
  • If you are of an advanced age and had history of stroke, and are being treated for high BP, then you are well advised to go to the ER and have it checked
