My wife had the same symptoms a year ago. It turned out that she had fluid around her heart. it had to be drained with a tube. Other wise she could have died. She spent 4 days in the hospital They said it started with a virus. If this is the case. Get your butt to the hospital and have it checked out. It can cause cardiac failure. You heart can stop it's working to hard with fluid there.
