For some weeks Ive been experiencing a shortness of breath (no big deal, Im overweight) and dizzy/giddy spells. Also been experiencing an uncomfortable sensation in my chest. Its not a crushing sensation or a sharp pain, just an unpleasant kind of jab (best way that I can put it) followed by a tingling sensation in the fingers of my left hand.
I was van driving yesterday and felt so nauseaus that I had to pull over for a while. I rang my GP today and have an appointment at another clinic tomorrow.
I feel fine posting this now but when I get the dizziness and breathlessness etc, its a bit concerning.

Extremities? Nature's thermometers we call them Tills. (^_*)
Fingers, nose and toes. My other extremities are well insulated, Togo. :-)
Hope all is well Nailit.

Have seen the Doc. Blood pressure slightly high but nothing to worry about. Got book an ECG with my own GP and have bloods done. Still none the wiser at the moment.
Thanks to all who replied.
Could be an irregular heart beat, nailit. The ECG will show that up if that is the problem.
