Had sudden chest pain on left side, trouble seeing in middle vision. Is it a stroke?

Hello, I have had sudden chest pains on the left side (not necessarily the heart , sometimes even more on the side than the chest itself) for the past half a year. They come and go, usually gets better with stretching or changing sides if laying down. Now, about 15 minutes ago, I had much trouble seeing things in the middle of the vision field and it shifted to the right, accompanied by a weird pattern. I did the usual stroke symptom checks with a co-worker but I passed them all. No chest pain was involved in this weird vision thing. Any ideas?

Hi, welcome to HCM.
It is not a stroke or myocardial infarction. It could be any thing like retinal detachment, vitreous haemorrhage or choriadal detachment. In rare possibility is embolism to retinal artery.
Whatever is cause you need to consult your ophthalmologist for emergency examination and treatment. It is acute emergency situation.

Hope I have answered your query.
