Get to an ER!: There is so much evidence that heart attacks are much, much easier to treat and recover fully from if you catch them early - that it is plain good sense to have it evaluated now! don't wait to make an appointment - just get there as soon as you can. In recent years women and other age groups are also at risk, but you are in a prime target group! it can save your life. Best!
