It is probaly a good idea to go to the hospital. Depending on your age, it could be signs of a heart attack, i doubt it. It does have some signs of a pulmonary embolism. That can be caused by a blood clot in the leg from sitting for a long period of time or recent surgery. The clot can migrate into your lungs and be a problem. That can happen at any age.
