Low sodium, faint: Weakness, faint feeling can be from dehydration which is why BUN is high and sodium is on the low side. Low sodium can cause weakness- I usually see it when <130. The chest pain in a 60 year old is serious and needs to be seen in an ER today https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hyponatremia/symptoms-causes/syc-203737
