Trying to figure out if this is nothing serious like
Patient :Trying to figure out if this is nothing serious like heart burn or acid reflux or if its something more serious. For the last week ive been experiencing pain in the left chest approx. An inch left of the left nipple. And seems to radiate upward into my neck with every beat of my heart. If i exhale and hold my breath it seems to worsen. Ive dismissed this as nothing until about 30 minutes ago when suddenly i got a sharp pain in my lower left back right at the pelvic area and a hot sensation up my neck and into my face. My face feels fuzzy and my vision is slightly fuzzy and the feeling of disorientation similar of feeling drunk. Heart rate is steady and regular. Also feeling clamy with sweaty palms and also seem to be sweating from my neck only and flushed face and hot to the touch like a fever but no feeling of being sick or flu. Dont know what to think and i dont want to waste time in the er. Please advise. Thanks for any help on input and opinion, Adam
