Hello, I have been under a lot of stress for about 10-12 days. Nickel 12yrs old one of my cats I had to put down, I can't get along with my son and his girl who live in my home, bills, etc.... I have been breaking down in uncontrollable sobs from grief and worrying. My chest has been hurting and just figured panic attacks but then I started having this feeling between my breast like a needle sticking in it and my stomach (not intestines) feels like a bowling ball is sitting on it. I have been vomiting and diarrhea. I feel funny/strange I cant explain this feeling. I also keep burping nonstop and it taste horrible/funny. I'm on omeprazol for acid re-flux. It has always helped but for the last couple days it has not. I'm scared, am I having a heart attack or had one?
Heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes run in my family...both mother and father. I'm sitting here like an idiot without going on to my local hospital because of a traumatizing experience with them recently in the ER. Do I need to do a 911 ??
