Must check the heart: A visit to one's primary care doctor very soon can help sort things out. If symptoms recur prior to the visit, one can go to the E.R. (A person with worrisome chest pain and shortness of breath has to go to his doctor or the E.R. to be checked right away for a heart attack. That means not waiting at home to see if it turns into a bad heart attack. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry".)

See your doctor: New symptoms, especially shortness of breath and chest pain, should be evaluated by your physician to help determine a cause. Take care of yourself and seek the care you need immediately.

Need more info: What brings the pain on? Do you have diabetes, or high blood pressure? What is your blood cholesterol level? Women often have atypical symptoms of heart disease and it would be prudent to see a doctor to rule out heart disease.
