Dizzy lightheaded sharp pain in chest can last an hour or more tired all the time sweat what should I do had complete work up done two months ago and come up with nothing in the er

Chest: Chest pain with light-headedness and sweating (diaphoresis) are obviously concerning symptoms. I don't know what testing you had in the er though I am glad you were evaluated.

Please see your regular doctor, such as a licensed internal medicine doctor or family practitioner. You may need further evaluation such as a treadmill test if you have not already had one. If a patient had persistent chest pain with those symptoms then it would be reasonable to consult their physician right away. ...Read more
