I woke up this morning with some weird symptoms,

I woke up this morning barely able to breath, bad pain/weight on my chest and when I tried getting out of bed, I collapsed and fainted for a short period of time. I'm going to the doctors in a couple days to get it checked out, but some answers before hand would be nice.

    Its a good idea to get checked out by your doctor. Before you get out of the bed or even change positions I suggest (so does the Mayoclinic) you drink 8oz of salty fluids. I have found V8 juce to be great for this I also suggest you drink a cup of water with this salty fluid. Lay in the bed for 15-20 minutes before getting up and sit up slowly and for about 5 minutes "dance" your feet on the floor or just move your feet around and then get up slowly.
