Lately I've been experiencing pain in the lower part of my right leg area. Specifically in the area at the end of the calf, and above the heel. The pain feels like a muscle spasm, and I can feel the pain more when I try to stretch my right leg. I also have been experiencing uncomfortable sharp and short chest pains that happen right after a moment of anger. Also, because of seasonal allergies, I've been experiencing tightness in the chest area, similar to asthma attacks, and I do use the nebulizer to help my breathing to get back to normal. At the same time I do get stress bubbles in my shoulder area, which causes tension headache, but lately I've noticed a severe neck and shoulder pain that is causing a strong, bad headache. Doctor, would this be an indication of or a sign of something bad?
Hi Rula s.,
I am not a doctor, but what you are describing can definitely be a sign of heart problems. Your leg pain could just be a cramp from under-hydration or not enough potassium, or you could be experiencing a blood clot (which much be ruled out and treated immediately). I encourage you to see your physician about your symptoms as soon as possible.
Best of luck,
