This morning I had lots of heartburn under the sternum. It kept getting worse, and I had some pain in my lower back and discomfort in my jaw (both sides, chest felt a bit tight and shortness of breath for about a minute.) I went outside for air, vomited three times, and now I just don't feel good, no other symptoms. Should I be concerned?
Hi At work now,
Definitely call your physician to discuss what you experienced and schedule an appointment to be evaluated. Here is a link to information on the signs/symptoms of a heart attack - http://www.healthcentral.com/heart-disease/patient-guide-44510-6.html.
All the best,
