Pain in the shoulder, chest, jaw and ear, chest tightness. On medication for blood pressure and bladder control. Need medical attention?

I am a 60 yr old grandma. Tonight I had sharp pain in my left shoulder , chest, jaw, and ear. I sat down and just made myself breathe through it until it lessened enough to come upstairs to my bedroom. My chest still felt a bit tight so I took my nightly meds and an aspirin . Its has been about an hour now and I feel better. I take a high blood pressure pill and one for bladder control. I worked pretty hard today. Maybe I am just pretty tired.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic


Any pain at this setting / age should be investigated as HEART PAIN – UNLESS PROVED OTHERWISE – In suspected heart attack, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE – if detected early, an attack may even be aborted / the amount of damage and complications can be reduced remarkably. The most important time is the first few hours. Better be safe than sorry - treated if a problem is found / Happy, if it turns out otherwise

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
