Customer Question

Hi I am 21 years old and female, relatively free of health problems, however over the course of the last few weeks I have been experiencing pain in my upper back and shoulder (left) and a squeezing of the heart. It feels like it constantly needs to be cracked. I was taking modafinil but have since stopped. I am currently experiencing a large amount of heat and pain in the left side of my chest and shoulder and it is tingling. It is more severe than it has been and feels like an anxiety attack (though I have had that before and can differentiate). Do you think I am having a heart attack? Please help quickly.
