Dear Gypsee,

Please see your doctor for a full cardiovascular checkup. Women often have unusual symptoms relating to heart disease, so they are often not considered candidates for heart problems. Especially at your age, you do need to be fully examined.

Even if no problem is found with your heart, you definitely have something going on which needs to be treated, so please do go to your doctor.
