She definitely should be seen by a doctor. Tell her you are concerned about her and want her to get checked out. Good luck to you and to her.

I have had two episodes in the past six months in which I experienced pressure between my shoulder blades followed by a stinging pain that traveled up my neck to my jawline, and then to my ears. Both times the discomfort was very short in duration, although the second episode lasted longer than the first. Could this be a heart problem? I am a 57-year-old female with no significant health history at all.

What could this be? It only tends to happen when I have alot of stress on my heart. For example : I hardly got any sleep today, my dad got rushed to the hospital, my mom caused my anxiety to sky rocket etc. I went to lay down after talking to my dad in the hospital, and my heart started racing really fast, but I wasn t breathing hard or anything. Is this serious? Or only because of Anxiety? Please help, I m really worried.
