Hi I wonder if anyone can help me
my mother has suddenly developed chest tightness/pressure which seems to start underneath her armpits and moves round to the front. They happen mostly at night but do occcur duringthe day also. she can not walk as far as she used to because thisalso brings on an attack. She has to stop what she is doing and sit for a while not lie down from between 2-15 minutes and then it subsides. It wakes her up in thenight and she sits on the edge of the bed till its gone. She says she is not short of breath and it doenst affect her breathing at all.she does not get dizzy or light headed. she does not sweat.has anybody any ideas what this may be. she does not smoke or drink .
thank you
