Risk of event: Hello I am concerned as your symptoms suggest a possible risk for a Cadiovascular event (eg. a heart attack /stroke) . Please call for an ambulance or get help to go to a hospital emergency room so that you can have some tests done asap. If these serious conditions are excluded then that will allow your doctors to look for other ,less serious, causes of your symptoms. Take care Dr Anben Naidoo
