If new onset, ER!: Women tend not to take these symptoms as serious as they might be, and wait valuable time to seek help. I would strongly recommend an er visit in this instance. If you are alone call 911, so as not to drive or waste time. They will check your blood pressure, oxygen level, ekg and blood tests, not to mention a neurologic exam.

Need cardiologist!: Your symptoms may be from blockage in the heart's blood supply vessels (coronary artery disease) and need to be evaluated asap. If you can tolerate aspirin, start taking an adult strength 325mg today, together with omega 3 fish oil. If symptoms are worsening, go to the er without delay! if they are stable, then see a md asap.
