In brief: Tell steward
Notify the flight attendant of your emergency.
If you have 325mg Aspirin take it if not allergic. If the blood pressure high enough to tolerate sublingual nitroglyceryn that may be considered. The pilot must know so he can contact an emergency dept. For instructions.

In brief: Ask for help
Ask for help. Many times medical personnel will be on the flight with you.
It is always best to ask for help from a stewardess. In an emergency the plan can be reputed to a medical facility or land.
