Psychiatrist 's  Response
Dec 2014
Hello sandrien.zahir
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Sudden onset chest pain, headache, dizziness, sweating, back and chest tightness may be most commonly due to Angina, but as her EEG is normal, her cholesterol levels are also only mildly increased. There are other reasons-
- One possibility in view of her age and sex, is it may be due to menopausal syndrome. Due to hormonal changes hot flushes are seen in women of this age, which may mimic the present symptomatology.
- Other thing is non specific anxiety, anxiety may present with palpitations, hot flushes, butterfly sensation in stomach, chest tightness, sweating etc.
Visit a good psychiatrist and take expert opinion.
