There can be a heart problem without a breathing disorder. If there is a problem with the right side of the heart, the noncompliance will cause fluids to backup in body parts. If left side is weak (pumping) there will be a backup of fluids in the lungs and breathing problems. Right side noncompliance will eventually cause pumping weakness (heart failure and heart muscle damage) if not treated. Worst case scenario, and that is the reason to get medical attention.
Nuasea, excessive sweating, etc. is an episode and the symptoms may go away for awhile, but the underlying problem will still exist. The body system is compensating (attempt to give the heart relief) with symptoms indicated.
