Ok, my dad is in his 60's. He has a heart condition (not 100% sure what it is) and high blood pressure. For the last two nights, he has been kept up by excessive gas that he can't seem to get rid of, heartburn and feeling hot. I tried to get his pulse a little bit ago, but it was weak enough I couldn't find it. When I touched him, he was really clamy and he looked very pale. My question is, should we wait till the morning to take him to the doc, or should we do it tonight?

I would probably err on the side of caution and go to the ER. Is there a nurse line on the back of his insurance or Medicare (if he has it) card? Call that first unless you feel it's life threatening. I'm pretty sure they are going to tell you to go to the ER as well.
