What would cause sudden severe upper left side abdominal pain w/chest tightness, SOB, & faintness found to be moderately relieved by inhaler?

You're asthmatic?: Presumably it could be many things. This combination sounds serious (especially the SOB and faintness) so if it happens often or lasts long you should be evaluated for things like blood clots. OTOH, if it has only happened once or is always very short lived it could be either mucus trapping, gas trapping (in the intestine) or "pleurisy" which just means pain coming from the lining of the lungs.

Why only after eating the main meal of the day, getting severe pain in upper eft abdomen? Pain oes away completely after two hours or so.

Pin after meals: Most likely the culprit is the stomach itself. Either an ulcer or just hyperacidity can cause such pain which gets better once the food passes further. You should see a GI specialist who can specifically diagnose these issues. In the mean time, avoid fatty food and high calorie diet. Fruits and veggies can help. Read more
