Chest pain. Feeling sick. Being sick. Cold sweat. Dizzy. Feeling light headed. Wheezing. Coughing. Shortness of breath feeling a bad sensation?

Cough: This is likely the common cold. Give it time and it will resolve. Take some tylenol (acetaminophen) and get plenty of rest. Do not forget about drinking enough fluid. If you are wheezing you may need to see your doctor and get a chest x-ray to rule out a pneumonia. The doctor can also give you a bronchodilator to make your breathing easier and open up the bronchi of the lungs. Good luck. Feel better. ...Read more

I have chest pains and pain in my left arm and back till I drink alcohol.... Why does the drinking make me feel normal? I also feel light headed

I have chest pains and pain in my left arm and back till I drink alcohol.... Why does the drinking make me feel normal? I also feel light headed

You need evaluation: I have no idea what the pain is, or why drinking alcohol makes it better, but you need to talk to your doctor. Hypertension in a 22 year old man is distinctly abnormal, and if your doctor has not tested you for more unusual causes of hypertension (coarctation of the aorta, primary hyperaldosteronism, renal artery stenosis and others), you should be tested for these. Talk to him about drinking also. ...Read more
