    Evening. Does the pain radiate to your shoulder? What you describe is like an angina. See a cardiologist to have and ECG done and give the best management. Cheers

    You should have your packed cell volume done too. Anaemia can cause dizziness. Are you on any medication? Is there any event or anything you observe before this symptom occurs?

    I'm an asthmatic patient, so I usually take ventolin once a day. How critical is all this and can u help me narrow it down to one illness or is it several?

    I'll advise you see a cardiologist to have the electrocardiogram done first. The result will show if there is a problem with your heart. The symptoms you described is that of someone who is having a "heart attack? So the test will help to make that diagnosis and you will get drugs to manage it.

    so all this symptoms can be narrowed down to a heart condition? How dangerous can it be if I don't get checked out soon cos I have a lot on my plate now?

    It could be very fatal and result in mortality if not checked out and managed urgently. So do that as soon as possible

    Nope. It cannot cause you to sleep alot but cardiac disease can cause easily fatigability.
