The : The symptoms you describe are concerning for a possible cardiac or neurological cause. Any chest pain is concerning to patients, and rightfully so. In addition you are having neurological (nervous system) symptoms. I am glad that you have already sought care for your symptoms, but as they are persisting i would advise further evaluation. When you see a doctor, it will be important for you to carefully describe your symptoms, and tell the doctor any medications or herbs you are taking, and any family history of heart of nervous system diseases.
