Not sure if I’m having or had heart attack. Pain in left upper back started five days ago out of the blue lasted ten mins and I went sweaty and out of breath. Then it subdued. However the last few days pain in my back and left arm has being getting worse, since today it is now constant and unbearable particularly in the arm, I feel nauseous and start to sweat profusely when getting up to do housework.
On the flip side I’m wondering if it’s just a bad strain and I’m seating more because the weather has been hot. I don’t want to call the hospital unnecessarily and I don’t feel well enough to sit in a and e waiting room.
I’ve taken two cocodamol but still very uncomfortable just laying on sofa in front of fan for now trying to stay calm.
