Customer Question

about 1 and half week ago I had severe chest pain and got such a fright I jumped in car and went to doctors in pyjamas but she literally sent me home with stomach tablets and said it was possibly indigestion. ..since then I still have a pain in left side chest and left arm. I break out in sweats and feel dizzy and was sick all day yesterday. I am constantly tired and sleeping all the time and now have shooting pain up neck. I am sleeping 13 hours a night and still can't get up on morning ..... feel tired and sick and although pain is constantly there and dull it feels worse sometimes but calms down. I out my clothes on this morning and had to sit down as I was so tired and broke out in a cold sweat with shaking hands. not want to go back to doctor as I am embarrassed they didn't listen first time.
