Hey, I'm 18 years old and I feel like there's

Patient

Q: Hey, I'm 18 years old and I feel like there's a weight on my chest. It's really hard to breathe. Im not a smoker btw, but I do live with smokers. I have also had really bad dizzy spells and headaches for sometime and it's getting ALOT worse. One time I fell asleep and i woke up sweating and i couldnt breathe, my heart was pounding really fast and i was scared i was going to pass out. Here recently I have also been having chest pains, although it doesn't feel like heartburn. I don't understand what's going on and My mom won't take me to the doctor, I can't pay to go. I need help because its getting worse. Not to mention i can drink water ALL day and still be thirsty. I'm not sure if this is bad or what. I could use some advice! Thank you!
