Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, and thank you for coming here with your question.
You need to go to A&E and have your heart checked out immediately.
The symptoms women have when they have heart attacks are not always the same as men.
Chest pain NEEDS to be taken seriously! Even the healthiest person could have a heart attack.
Thankyou. I have no-one to take me so will try and contact a friend.
You must go ASAP.
Please be in touch with me when you get back so that I know you are okay.
(If you don't mind).
I am in the US, so I'm not sure how it works in the UK, but if you were here I'd tell you to call an ambulance, because things can go downhill very quickly.
Dear Dr. Charogat,
You answered my query last night and I took your advice and went to hospital. I was kept in overnight for checks. The problem proved to be gallstones and I am now waiting to have my gall bladder removed. I am so grateful for your help. Thankyou so much and God bless you too.
