    Last week ago i got real sick (diabetic) and my heart rate spiked and wouldnt go down.. got to the point where i was rushed to the hospital. Now im home iv noticed these same symptons .. nothing close to as bad as OP.. but i understand what hes saying.. it hurts like crazy in a spot that if you feel pain its kinda scary. Ive read its a muscle under your chin and when it tightens up you feel this pain. Dont know whats the cause all of a sudden but if the pain last super long like that again if possible take a drink of room temperature water, takes the pain away right away. Hope all is well.
