Heart starts beating fast/hard with head chest, shoulder pain
Out of the blue my heart will thump (what is feels like) then begin racing. Once that starts I will get a severe ache in my left shoulder (no arm pain). Aching around my chest (like someone is squeezing me) and an intense pressure pain from the back of my neck to my temples. This has gone on for years but is starting to happen more often, last longer and the pain getting more intense (currently having one of these attacks). Will the High Blood Pressure medication i just started taking resolve this? Or do I need to ask my doctor to check something else?
