Customer Question

I get, almost every day, pain in my right upper chest accompanied by hot flushing and extreme tiredness. This lasts for a couple of minutes but afterwards I want to lie down and sleep. This is a very distressing occurence.
I am male and 83 years of age. I also have quite severe vertigo.

Hi--what medical conditions do you have besides the vertigo? This occurs just as you arise in the morning? Has a doctor evaluated this and if so what tests have been done?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Only peripheral neuritis. In good health for my age. Have been to top class physio and do series of exercises.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Billy--but what studies have been done for this and what is the presumptive diagnosis for your symptoms?
