Sudden scary feeling in Neck and shoulders and both Arms
I suddenly experienced a scary feeling (hardly any pain) that came upon my upper body then to my neck then to both of my shoulders and my arms. It came three times within a 30 day period.It lasted no more than a few seconds . No return bouts since Mid Nov 08. I am very worried. Can you please advise me.
I am 67 years old I weigh 240 lbs/ 5.11 . I have type 2 diabetes (under 120 fasting ) and Hypertension ( under 140 /80 )
I Feel I am in good health . I am taking Glucutrol 10 mg and Metformin 1000 mg daily
Benicar 20 mg and Hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg, also daily
I would go right away to a doctor or emergency room. My husband awoke one morning a year ago, saying his arms felt "weird". He couldn't really explain the feeling. We had been moving furniture and boxes because of water damage in the house, and we thought it could be that. Because his Dad died at age 52, and younger brother age 65, and I knew that can be a sign of a heart attack,even though He had no other signs or pain.I called the doctors office. Because of his history, they had him got to the emergency room, where they found a 85% blockage in his artery, and he had a stent put in the next morning. They said had he not gone in, he probably would have had a massive heart attack. He has had no problems since.
