My step father has sharp crunching (as he describes it)pain


Q: My step father has sharp crunching (as he describes it)pain on the right side of his chest. His right arm and leg went completely numb now it's hurting severally bad, to the point he can't walk or move his leg or arm. He had shortness of breath at one point but that is no longer happening. He is running a 101 fever also. We took him to the er but they can't find anything wrong but a small amount of fluid in his right leg. He is a diabetic which is controlled by medicine with no other medical problem. What could be causing this?
