I am a 40 year old male, recently I have been experiencing ramdom numbness in my left hand and jaw, headache, and nausea all at the same time.. It has happened 2x in the last 5 days.. Sounds alarming.. Any advise.

User avatar Hi there -

Knowing as little as I do about you other than your symptoms, and given your age as the lone qualifier, I'd have to say it would be in your best interest to be seen by your doctor ASAP or, if that's not possible, then be seen at an ER, since you describe enough symptoms that could be atypical for coronary artery problems that it would be extremely prudent to rule this out. If this turns out to be negative then you can more safely take your time finding out what actually is wrong. If this is a heart problem, you need to know as soon as possible. Simple as that. Never hesitate if there's any question.

I hope this is helpful. Please follow up with us and let us know what you find out.
