Dear *****ient, it is necessary that you do not wait any longer, you need to go to the emergency as soon as possible, try to calm down and get help, if you are only asking for help, do not drive the vehicle.
it is necessary to perform an electrocardiogram and rule out any allergies

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
