Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Your symptoms sound like a medical emergency. We need to rule out Myocardial Infarction, Aortic aneurysm in particular, since these are most dangerous. But as I do not know your age and other risk factors, I cannot say it for sure. However, it may not be that serious also. So, do not get panicked. Anyhow, as I feel that the symptoms described by you needs an emergency evaluation and treatment, please visit a ER at the earliest. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.
