I have pain on my left shoulder , but I have been having shortness of breath and hot flashes recently, I have had the pain for 4 days. I do have high blood pressure with kidney disease. Do you think I need to see a doctor
Hi, if you're still feeling the pain and shortness of breath, I think you need go to ER. If you're feeling okay now, I will suggest you go see a cardiologist.
Yes , you should . It sounds like a heart attack. If it pains so much , you should go to ER ASAP. it's life-threatening.
