Are these signs of a mild heart attack? Should I seek immediate medical assistance? I was awakened by a slight chest pain, right side of breast bone. I am a side sleeper and when I lay on my side (either one) I am uncomfortable and have more pain in my chest and some numbness in some of my fingers. Sometimes there is a thin line down by back that has pain. Earlier today, I bent over & had stomach acid come up my throat. Last night I had numbing in my arms and some fingers as I slept.

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
