Hi, thanks for responding so promptly to my previous post. Just to refresh , mentioned to you that i've been getting severe chest pains, with extreme pain in the left jaw and arm. You said it could possibly be Angina.

These past 2 days have gotten worse, extremely tired, walk a short distance , totally out of breath, feel my heart racing. Getting this extremely sharp pain in my left leg, Not sure how all this is related. When I walk, I have to sometimes stop dead in my track because of this sudden sharp pain.

What happens if i ignore these symptoms, will i suffer a heart attack, is this a sign of an impending attack.

What should i do.

Dear Kay
You should have been to your doctor already!! The pain in the leg could also be indicative of a deep vein thrombosis and YES you could be heading for a heart attack or stroke! Please go to your doctor AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
