Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. We are sorry that you are experiencing such symptoms. We believe you will be best assessed if you go to your nearest emergency. When a patient is having difficulty breathing along with chest pain this may be due to a problem with your heart such as a myocardial infarction (heart attack). This needs to be ruled out first as this is the most life threatening possible cause for your pain. Please go to your nearest hospital for a full evaluation.
