I am a 26 year old female and over the last week I have been getting a burning feeling in the left hand side of my chest around and under the breast area.
I feel lightheaded, sick, clammy hands and I sweat at night even if it's cold. My heart rate isn't fast but I do feel it pounding more then usual.
It happens mainly at night and sometimes when I am sitting down doing nothing.
It often radiates round to the side of my chest and under my arm pit and just a few hours ago my upper back area also started burning along with pins and needles.
I wouldn't say it's painful just uncomforterble and worrying!
My breathing isn't any different (I have asthma anyway) and it sometimes burns a bit more when I cough.
Please help!!!!
thank you
