You need to see immediately a cardiologist, you may be having heart attack. You need to take care of it soon. You need to take the tablets regularly.

Once a heart disease, it is life time and once the heart fails it keeps failing recurrent if you do not take enough precautions. Ask your doctor all you have to do regarding the diet exercise etc to prevent next time pain and problems with heart.
