Chest swelling, heart fluttering, swollen arm vein, abscess tooth. Dizziness and breathlessness

My left side of my chest and is swollen, heart is fluttering, and the main vein in my left arm where it bends swells up and is very purple. It gets worse when I am up and moving around. I have an absess tooth on the left bottom of my mouth, and my moellers are coming in and have been for a while but there is not enough room for them to push through, so there is irritation and swelling in the left side of my neck. But the chest and vein in my arm are really worrying me. If I get up and move around it swells worse and I get dizzy and short of breath.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic
     You need examination and investigations –
     You have not stated your personal habits, family history, or co-morbidities, even age or gender...which could influence the diagnosis and outcome...
     Any swelling must be examined to get diagnostic clues...
     Dizziness, breathlessness and fluttering are ominous signs and indication to see the cardiologist, as soon as possible. EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
