I agree 100% with Dr. Fried. In addition to makine an appointment with your doctor, you should abstain from heavy physical exertion and drink plenty of non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated beverages. If you start getting these symptoms at rest, if they get worse or if you get other symptoms as well, please seek care at an emergency department. You're life may depend on that.
