Am i heading for a heart attack
i have this pain, it is between my collar bone and left breast, I also feel very light headed and it feels as if my heart is beating too fast, could i be heading for a heart attack? It actually feels like i am going to faint, but i don' t - have been feeling like this for a few months now. It is not a regular feeling it comes and goes.

Hallo Julie
You may have a heart dysrythmia or a leaking heart valve. Please ask your doctor to listen to your heart and to do an ECG?
