Tender lump behind the ear. Sharp pains on the back radiating to legs, pressure in chest, breathing difficulty. Heart attack?

Hello, I have a pea sized bump behind my left ear. It doesn t really bother me unless I mess with it and then it gets tender. I also had sharp pains in my left middle back yesterday and today I have pains shooting all the way down my left leg. Two days ago I had extreme pressure in my chest and was worried I might be having a heart attack . My chest hurt to the touch when I was having the chest pain , could not get a deep breath. I have no idreea if all the things are related and have no insurance. Any help would be appreciated.

mass behind the ear sounds chronic issue could be a benign lymph node or lipoma or a sebaceous cyst. a simple excision will help
pain radiating down the leg. now that might be a simple nerve pinch or back ache or a kidney stone if your urine is having blood or you have pain in urination. if not cheers. just analgesia with acetaminophen will help
And your chest and heavy breathing and worry for a heart attack? had it been a heart attack you would have been here writing this question on HCM. to reassure yourself do a simple ECG and you will be fine.

Regards and cheers
