Coughing for a heart attack

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing for a heart attack


Avatar m tn After a procedure of having 5 stents in my left coronary artery I had an episode due the fact the catheter had pierced the artery wall, causing a small bleed. It was sealed with a stent, but caused a rhythm problem to occur in recovery. I remember asking the Cardiac Doctor for a bowl because I felt nauseous and the pain from the incision was unbearable. She looked at me, then the monitor and kept shouting "I want you to cough, and keep coughing".

584692 tn?1218267447 Certainly felt like a heart attack. Just turned 50 - 64 kilos in weight and 5 foot 7. Certainly not overweight and if anything underweight. Have lost heaps of unintentional weight in the last 12 months. 6 weeks ago after suffering from chronic bronchitus and constantly coughing, ended up getting angina for the first time in my life - twice and spent 2 days in hospital.
6002753 tn?1378165787 I am a female and 28. Ok so since about January i have been having heart attack like symptoms. I have seen a cardiologist and electrophysiologist.they have ruled out anything associated with my heart. i get a sinking feeling when it starts and then my heart races and then i get dizzy,short of breath, and the pain starts. this happens off and on throughout the day. i also feel sick to my stomach.
Avatar f tn I'm ok now I'm sure it's not a sign as a heart attack I know what the signs are for them. I'm just worried about alot and I stress alot. Plus I have a common heart merger.
Avatar m tn I am sorry to tell you this but a Heart Attack always means that a part of the cardiac muscle has death (otherwise there is not a HA). That means that depending on how big the HA was( affected area) and how long it took to restore the coronary circulation the permanent lost of EF can be more or less. Normally there are some chance of recovery until 1 year of the HA, although the biggest part it is usually in the first 3 - 6 months.
Avatar m tn Ok so for past few years like 2-3 i started out having this pain in my heart area like a dull ache,followed by an anxious feeling and whatnot.Also i have the feeling of my left side being bigger then my right and i can see like the front bottom of my ribs are sticking out a bit further then my right side.
Avatar f tn After a coughing spell that needs Albuterol, the bronchial passages can stay sensitive or even inflamed for a while. A particular kind of sticky phlegm can form in the tubes, and the kid tries to get it out by a gasping kind of outward coughing breaths. You might take him to his regular pediatrician and describe what has been going on -- Albuterol is useful but if your son has had an asthma attack, he might need some kind of longer-term mild decongestant.
Avatar n tn I went to ER and admitted just based on shortness of breath... when told I had had a heart attack I was shocked!...I thought it was a repiratory problem. It is difficult to know when one is in heart failure mode, but with a history and a continuous dry cough, CHF can't be ruled out. Also, as stated medication can produce a cough although I have never had that experience. Hope this provides some insight, and thanks for sharing.
Avatar f tn I also hqve stiffy neck and i am coughing what can it be.
Avatar n tn In last four years, when I started on ramipril the dose was very high in first three years, but except for first year, I did not have coughing problem. Since last year I am on smaller dose of ramipril, Not able to make out what is causing coughing. I also got my blood sugar tested, today and it is normal. I was suspecting it as one of the possible reason for sweating. Now it is ruled out. Wondering if acidity could cause sweating?
Avatar n tn Well minus the coughing it sounds like a panic attack. Does the coughing trigger the heart palpitation or does the heart palpitation come before the coughing? Sometimes coughing can trigger a rapid heart rate. Don't worry about it but if you ever pass out then you must go to the doctor immediately. It's good you have mentioned it to a doctor. Good luck.
386141 tn?1291396896 Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has had any success with a second ablation for AVNRT. I had one 2 years ago, but have since had a sustained SVT attack. My EP says there is only a 30% chance of starting the SVT off and he seems to think I will be wasting thier time...Charming!! I'm booked for the 20th March and they will be going in just through the groin this time, as he reckons there is always a higher risk with a second ablation than the first.
Avatar m tn all is going well except for the fact that when he lays down he has a coughing attack everytime. he is not coughing anything up but is really misable cause he cant sleep unless he is in a recliner. is this normal?
Avatar m tn HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. 7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
Avatar m tn BACKSTORY In 2012 I was working in a bar. Part of that job involved flipping chairs and mopping. during this time I noticed a pain in my chest, (lower left lateral chest) that felt as though I pulled a muscle. This was in March. In November 2012 the pain had still not stopped. Here I should tell you that I am a heavy smoker (pack a day). Anyways towards the end of the month I woke up in the middle of the night thinking I had a heart attack.
Avatar n tn My chihuahua was just in the vet the end of December for her annual shots and a check up. Her heartworm was negative at this time as well. She is a house dog, she uses a litter box and never goes outside when it is cold. She is playful usually. Lately, she has been having attacks where she is gasping for air and wheezing with a panicked look on her face. She then coughs up some foamy spit. I can usually help stop this by calming her down. This happens when she gets excited or hot.
Avatar f tn i have now for 4 years been dealing with a heart condition that nobody can seem to figure out what it is they know something is wrong but dont know what but i will get dizzy and times pass out my heart races and sometimes it just beats hard and feels like it is coming out of my chest or throat sometimes it feels like my heart is on a roller coaster i cant do strenous activities cause all the symptoms get worse and i will shake and get short of breath i stay tired like i have had no sleep and is
Avatar m tn Immediately following an angiogram subsequent to a minor heart attack I developed a severe cough which at times produced a dense grayish mucous/phlegm. Does anybody know what caused it? Could it be side effect of one of the meds prescribed post procedure?
Avatar m tn Taking Ramipril In morning for several years. Recently started taking Laxido & banana (for breakfast). About the same time started coughing frequently but intermittently & became slightly breathless when walking. 2 days ago doctor called Emergency as I had persistent chest pain & burping. No heart attack but abnormal ecg, which however improved after being in A&E for several hours. Wondering if Ramipril + laxido + banana too much potassium?
Avatar f tn 81 year old female, congestive heart failure, diabetes, triple bypass 15 yrs ago. Had heart attack 3 days ago, retaining lots of fluid despite the multiple doses of lasik given daily. Heart cath showed (picture attached). Doctors said there is nothing they can do but give her Plavix and blood thinners. I just want to know if we should take her to another hospital or if it would be useless.
Avatar n tn s heart condition. he had a mild heart attack almost 11 years ago and had a major bypass a year and a half ago. After the bypass surgery he has developed a consistent cold.
Avatar m tn Anxiety attacks follow anxious thinking. If you're fully relaxed, that doesn't sound like an anxiety attack unless the anxiety is chronic and deeply rooted and comes out when it comes out. A month without a panic attack is great unless the reason is that you're avoiding the things that trigger them, in which case you still have the anxiety problem, you're just dodging it.
