Question: for the past week ive had weird chest activities after 8pm.... i would describe it as

-light chest pain that jumps around to different spots in my upper chest
-light feeling of abnormal heart behavior
-after random heart activity i get a sensation on my left side (face to toe) that resembles blood rushing similar to when you had a arm that was asleep.

i usually take aspirin in fears of the worse, but im debating if this is an emergency (doubting it because it been a week and thankfully nothing has happen) or if i should just book appointment on monday

Hello Ma’am

After going through the medical details and the symptoms which you are experiencing I would like to tell you that although it doesn’t seems like to be a medical emergency but still as you’re feeling symptoms of heart flutter palpitations so it is highly advisable that you should consult your primary physician once and get an ecg done for basic cardiac evaluation.

It becomes even more important if you have associated comorbidities like diabetes or hypertension or thyroid problems.

I hope this information will guide you properly

Kind Regards

Hello again

Detailed Answer:
Your blood pressure is high and if with this blood pressure you are having any chest discomfort then it’s advisable to seek medical attention as soon possible by visiting an ER as a precaution.

Also get an ecg done there for basic cardiac evaluation.

Hope to have been helpful.
