Chest pain: Go see a doctor asap and get checked. Go now if this is new and is accompanied by shortness of breath and/or nausea, sweating, dizziness, or if you have a cardiac history, or a family history of it, or risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, or you smoke. Not all chest pain is cardiac, but this needs to be ruled out first, especially if exertional.
