What causes elevated heart rate along with hot flashes and body ache?

I have elevated heart rate between 75-95 BPM. Hot flashes, warmer than normal and a little nauseous then it goes away. Achy body, more than normal fatigue, abnormal radiating pain down left arm, feels like abdominal muscle is being squeezed and tingling in my fingertips. Any ideas?

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I would like to tell you that your symptoms of squeezing pain radiating in both arms with nausea and body fatigue along with hot flashes are typical angina which can turn into a heart attack anytime.

It's recommended for you to consult with a Cardiologist ASAP for cardiac evaluation and further management.

Take care.

I ve been experiencing these strange occurances. It starts with really hot flashes to my face and it stays hot and red for a while. Then I get a rapid heart rate and dizzy spells/light headedness. Then it turns into a slight headache. I am on blood pressure medication Procardia XL and have been on it since August. What could be my problem?

I have noticed over the past several weeks that after meals and at other times during the day I feel extremely hot, start sweating and my heart feel like its pounding. My heartrate goes over 110. I am having an episode that started about 1/2 hr. ago and my heartrate was 115 when it started. The sweating has stopped but I still feel my heart pounding and my heartrate is 109. Is this a normal thing to experience ? Do I need to be concerned about it ?
