Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Is he a smoker. He could be having Deep vein thrombosis of that leg which can throw emboli and block his heart and cause breathless, giddiness and death if not treated properly. Take him to the Doctor immediately who will perform some tests to confirm. Let him avoid walking or much motion for now. The chest and arm pain indicates possible angina or heart attack symptoms. Get him to his Doctor or the ER immediately.
