Giddiness and Breathing Difficulty

Dear Forum Friends,

Late in the night of 26th Dec, I got up to go to the loo. I felt giddy, I remember placing my hand on the wall and after a few minutes I found myself sitting on the closet. Got up slowly and while walking to the bedroom, again felt severe giddiness and again sat down on the floor. After a few minutes got and somehow managed to go upto the bed and lied down. Severe sweating and giddiness. Severe oppressed breathing also. Sat up for a few minutes after some time. Did some deep breathes. Still the giddiness persisted. Felt heat on my left palm and some sort off pricking.

Could lie down and feeling very reckless. With the help of my wife, I walked up to a doctor who is my neighbor. Checked BP, and it was 132/80. He said that it was a mild heart attack/angina pectoris. Gave me a tablet to take and asked me to get it checked the next day with ECG. I got my ECG done and met the cardiologist. he said that there was absolute no problems. He changed my BP tablet and included a tablet to reduce cholestrol and thickness of the blood.

Even though its a few days after the attack, I still feel restless. My breathing is oppressed and difficult. The chest and point between the joint of the of rib cage and below the breast is a bit heavy and feels like something heavy is put on it.

I have started Calc Flur 3c 4tabs, 3 times a day.

I would really appreciate if someone could advise me my problem and also advise me any medicines I need to take.

Many thanks in advance and looking forward to a valuable contributions from my forum friends.

Best Wishes
