Hi all needing advice..about six hours ago after a bit of vigorous exercise I experienced the following symptoms: chest pain and pressure, my left shoulder hurts, I felt dizzy and faint, cold sweat, numbness in arms tried to check pulse could not find it. Tips of fingers were blue. I do not have a heart condition but have noticed over my last few Dr checks I'm showing signs of high blood pressure. My mom has hypertension and suffered TIA last year, my grandmother died of a stroke after two heart attacks years apart. Still feeling tired and my left shoulder hurts..but feels like stiffness in the front and weak. Should I go to the ER or just make a follow up with Dr? Does this sound like an attack..confused on what to do..I feel fine right now other than my shoulder and not sleeping well. Symptoms lasted about 10-15 mins then subsided.

Hello lilbitty71,

Welcome to the forum!

I would suggest that you visit the ER just to be sure that everything is okay. Your docs will be able to do some test to confirm if you had a heart attach or if it was angina or something else. If it keep reoccurring, please visit the ER to get checked out.

I hope you will be okay...

Thank you I will. Plan to for sure make an appointment on Monday to see family physician for a follow up. Still feeling tired and just off.
