Hi:

"what can I do......"

Please consult with your doctor(s) promptly.

Chest pain and shortness of breath (dyspnea) is bad/troubling enough upon exertion, and is worse when occurring during relaxation/resting.

There are various drugs and procedures (as applicable) that may/can help/improve your particular situation.

Best of luck down the road of life.

Take care,
