Help! Mild chest pains and tingly arm and leg.

I came home from doing the school run and suddenly felt weird and dizzy so lay on the sofa. I now have tingling in my left arm and left leg/foot and a mild but stabby pain under my arm pit.
I suffer from depression and anxiety so it could be some sort of panic attack.
Does anyone have any advice as to what I should do? Part of my anxiety is based around doctors/hospital so I never know if I should call them or m overreacting.
I am only early thirties.

Not an HCP but take action, now.

Can you get to an out of hours walk in centre? Some hospitals have them. Can anyone drive you? Even if this is not a heart attack, they are symptoms you should not ignore. See a doctor. You are not a time waster and you have every right to treatment so don't be apprehensive.

Good luck.

telephone 111 and they'll talk you through any action you might need to take.

I hope you are ok OP. If you haven't already, I would phone 111 and describe your symptoms to them. Better to be safe, and you are not wasting anyones time by asking if you need help.
