I had an uncomfortorable amount of chest pain in the middle of my chest

Around 8:30pm last night, I noticed that I had an uncomfortorable amount of chest pain in the middle of my chest, and under neath my left breast. It feels like someone is squeezing my heart. Shortly after that started, i also noticed that my left arm started to feel like it was numb, kind of like when your arm falls asleep. My toes have turned a bluish purple, and my neck has been getting stiff, underneath my jaw bone. Randomly I have had spells of dizziness, and confusion. Is this normal?

I hope by now you have seen the Dr or gone to the ER. If you have chest pain or discomfort going down your left arm or jaw those are classic signs of a heart attack. Do not ever hesitate to seek medical attention. The treatment and the medication that you receive within hours of a heart attack or even stroke can save your life or at the least limit the amount of damage. Please listen to your body and seek medical advice if you have not done so already!

Hi.. Sudden onset chest pain are to be considered as that due to a heart problem unless it can be proved otherwise.. This is a logic that is followed by most of the doctors... So since your symptoms were acute in onset and you have other cardiac symptoms too, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible... They could be features of anginal pain or worse minor myocardial infarction... See a doctor and get evaluated...
