Chest Pain and Extreme Above Eye Pain
Chest Pain: There is extreme pain in the right side of my chest which spreads across to my heart
giving a sometimes lume feeling other times a sharp shooting pain. On many occassions it closes my chest where i find it hard to breath and i can no longer sleep on my side in the evenings as my chest feels closed. Lately theres a pain in my right arm and it twitchers alot.
EyePain. Recently I started at a new firm, which requires my eyes focused on the computer 8 Hours a day. The problem is since Thursday I get this sharp shooting pain and a dizzy feeling and it happens directly in my eye area. I do not receive a headache.

Could the two be related?

Please give me advice as to what I must do.

Hi Rosa

I'm not sure what your age are - but it's best to have your chest pain seen to by a doctor. See our article on Chest ain in our A-Z database.

Your eye pain is unlikely to be related and sounds more like a visual problem. Best to see an optometrist who will test your eyesight, etc.
