  • An uncomfortable feeling or pain in the chest.
  • Strange and uncomfortable sensations throughout the upper body.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Breaking out in a cold sweat.
  • Feeling unusually fatigued for no apparent reason.
  • Sudden feelings of dizziness or lightheadedness.
  • Feeling nauseated.
