I have been suffering from weird almost lightheaded and pulsing head beating for awhile. Headbeating worses when lying down.
Also sometimes like today i have this strong sharp pain near my right side chest. I have slight pain near my back but too bad.
What scares me is that pain like when i breathe its like a sharp needle pain near my chest iy lasts like a minute. When i inhale like 1/2 way to a deep breath i feel needle pain.
What is that a stroke? I not try to breathe as hard deep it get worse.
It happened once today but hapoened b4.
This does not sound like a stroke. Likely possibilities that may need to be considered include infections/ inflammations of the chest wall, pleura, GI/ related issues etc. The lightheadedness/ pulsating feeling could occur due to other reasons such as low blood sugar, high blood pressure, anxiety/ stress etc. I would suggest considering an initial evaluation by a primary care physician and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.
