Gas pain vs heart attack

Common Questions and Answers about Gas pain vs heart attack


Avatar n tn but I got the attack caught on a monitor. The heart doctor told me that the attack was a panic attack.. I couldn't believe it. Im starting to think if the monitor was hooked up right on me.. it seemed like an odd setup the girl put it on with all the connections in a straight line below my left nipple.. Didn't have any connections up high.. But I have to just have confidence the monitor was right and somehow its a weird type of anxiety attack.. He also gave me an echo..
Avatar m tn I've had two nervous breakdowns. That is an old term for a very bad cases of adrenal insufficiency. It was terrible but I reserve the word horrendous for severe vitamin B12 deficiency (due to autoimmune pernicious anaemia). Until you are going literally mad (incorrectly termed megaloblastic madness since it has nothing to do with blood cells) you really don't appreciate how much you love your sanity. My anxiety worsened with severe magnesium deficiency, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism.

Avatar f tn I have been having pain in my left arm, back, jaw. You name a heart attack symptom and I have it. It has been a week since all this started and it is getting worse by the day. Sometimes I can convince myself it is anxiety then other times I just start to freak out. My grandma just died in February of a heart attack and I have the same symptoms she did. It is driving me crazy I just can't stop worrying about it. I dont want to go to the ER and feel stupid.
Avatar n tn I dring about 8 glasses of water a day, but still have alot of gas pain. Is this normal? Also, since I take fish oil every day (GNC brand - 900 mg), should I still put flax seeds in my diet? Do I need both? If not, which is better to fight cholesterol? Your help will be greatly appreciated! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/630844'>Cholesterol numbers – different for women?</a>.
Avatar f tn I forgot to mention that they do provide pain management at this hospital in drug form ( there is a list you can chose from - gas being one option but not sure about the rest.. think another was morphine. Just something to take the edge off ) well before they would even come close to giving someone epidural. 1 of my friends just had her son 3 weeks ago and she said she was only in labour 3 hours and had no drugs at all.
Avatar n tn I am not sure whether the A/Fib is causing the gas/bloating and the asthma attack or the other way around. Another interesting symptom that happened to me was when I went to the ER with an A/Fib event. It took them 14 hours to gain control of my heart rythym. I had to urinate a lot. I'm talking quarts. I found it surprising to me that the doctors did not know why, for I know it was related to the A/Fib event. Most Doctors are not scientists, nor do they have the time to be.
Avatar n tn I lost 20 lbs which is great but now it seems like I'm more sensitive to certain foods causing stomach gas. I just recently linked my heart palps to gas/indigestion! I can predict when they are coming just by what I feel or hear from my stomach. I had a really scary episode last week that landed me back in the ER. I felt like my heart stopped- scared me to death so we went in. They hooked me up to the EKG for an hour or so and the heart palps happened while I was being monitored.
Avatar f tn While there are no absolute guarantees in this life, it sounds like you've been check-out sufficiently to make a heart attack unlikely. Have you had any emotional analysis, i.e., panic/anxiety/depression.. whatever? Emotions can cause rhythm problems, and likely bowel problems too. I am not aware of any other connection between the two physical conditions.
Avatar n tn Since then I went back twice thinking I was having a heart attack or something because I was having chest pain with it. I went to so many doctors and so many of them kept telling me I had anxiety. I knew this wasn't it because I am not someone who overly worries or stresses about things although now this had all started I had started to become a bit of a worrier. I mean I went from carefree to heart problems in the span of a week.
Avatar n tn My chest pain is subsiding throat is sore still. I too was on the heart monitor/blackberry ACT sensor for 21 days prior to procedure. It would be nice to have it on for a few weeks post surgery to see what is going on. FYI I was on the flourescope for 99 minutes during the 11 hour ablation and ep study and my ep stated that I will have a radiation burn on my back in approx 4-6 weeks. Oh well. During 11 hours, I am certain he ablated everything that he felt was a problem.
233488 tn?1310696703 Boston Marathon winner Alberto Salazar at age 47 was luckier and was successfully resuscitated after sustaining a heart attack while running, collapsing unconscious and without a pulse for 14 minutes. Future research is needed to find who is susceptible to having this happen, why, and how can we best train and exercise and enjoy the benefits without taking on life-threatening risks. One such test is a Heart CT Scan.
Avatar n tn over the past few months i have been having pain and swelling from the knees down. my ankles and the top of my feet ache & swell. it started with numbness & tingling in my right calf. then the swelling & pain started. has anyone had this problem? and do you think its due to tx? thank you so much.
Avatar n tn I have constant chest pains accompanied with arm pain and left breast pain. I am afraid that I am having a heart attack at times. I am so afraid that I even put 911 on my quick dial key from my cellphone. I get stressed out a lot. I have been stressed even more lately especially considering that I just lost my grandmother to lung cancer. She passed away August 2, 2010. I was very close to her and I feel a lot of sadness because she is gone. I often wonder if that sadness has intensified my pain.
Avatar n tn I have got exactly the same thing. But im way to young to have this. Its not fair. Does this have something to do with not being fit?? I had these problems when I was even younger but the doc said I had nothing. WTF. Could it be linked to a stroke. Help!!!
Avatar n tn I am having very sharp stabbing pain on my right heel. It comes all of a sudden that i wake up and makes my heart beat so fast and the pain makes me yell out. It usually last for seconds, comes and goes like a throbbing pain and I get it when im at rest. Has anyone find out what it is? please help.
Avatar m tn However, every 3-5 weeks I will have intense pain in my stomach while playing, which becomes gas, which can sometimes even become diarrhea. The pain quickly disappears when I sit down as long as it has not reached the gas or diarrhea stage, and the stomach pain is more sever the more strenuous my movements. I doubt doubt its dehydration since I make sure to drink plenty of water. The pain feels more like my stomach is empty than that I am still digesting food I recently ate.
1554262 tn?1374243601 I am so sorry to hear about your attacks of sudden severe chest pain. The obvious first thought is cardiac. The pain doesn't have to be exactly over your heart or on the left side.....however drinking cold water should not relieve cardiac symptoms. If anything it should make it worse. But I am far from an expert. So I cannot say for certain that it is not cardiac. It's possible it is a gastrointestinal problem.
Avatar m tn Since the removal of the stent, I have had waves of severe back pain similar to the initial pain I had when I discovered the stone. I heard the ureter can spasm as it heals and this blocks the urine flow in the kidney causing the pain. How long should this last? What is the best way of managing the pain?
Avatar n tn I just can't believe this. I was thinking how in the world can I have a THREE year old with back pain? MY first thought was urinary tract infections...since as a child I had them myself. Since I was alarmed, I went to the doc soon after complaints..again in CAR SEAT ..I do not have the one you all have in common..its just a Graco..but mu poor son screams every time he get in there "my back hurts!' It breaks my heart to see him in pain that I can do nothing about.
Avatar n tn Perscribed Nitroglycerin for the pain and told me to take 2 Nexium vs. 1 for 30 days. He told me he would get back to me if anything else showed up in the tests. Blood tests 5/1 MTI 5/6. To date I have not heard a word from my Gastro. Doc. However; my GP(also received copies of all tests) called yesterday and asked if I was taking any kind of iron pill or suppliment; I am not.What's that about?
Avatar n tn Due to surgery, I was not sure of gas pain or ??? At my post op doc said pain was not related to surgery, too high, etc. I had an abdominal/gall bladder ultrasound yesterday and do not yet know the results... except the technician said "no gallstones". I should have been happy.. but I need an answer! Everyone thinks the timing is odd and related to surgery....
Avatar n tn Flank pain also awakens me after 5-6 hours of sleep, just like you the pain subsidizes after I wake up and move around for a few minutes. Base on my experience, the pain is muscular. As we sleep, our body temperature may slightly drop, leading to a muscular pain/spasm around the kidneys/lower back area. As I am sitting here in this cold library, I can feel the flank pain.
Avatar n tn i tried taking Tylenol at first thinking i may have pulled a muscle or worse maybe it could have been my Heart. i tried laying down the pain seem to get worse so i ended up sleeping in a Recliner. i wasn't Evan able to obtain a long amounts of sleep maybe 30mins to 1hr at a time, once 8am came around i couldn't take the pain any longer, and decided it would all get dealt with faster in the Er than at a Dr office.
Avatar n tn Pain under the left shoulder blade can be a signal that there is a problem with the stomach or other abdominal structures (ulcers, pancreatitis, ectopic pregnancy) or in the chest (myocardial infarction [heart attack], pericarditis, pleuritis, pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, aortic dissection)." Has anyone been given a diagnosis related to internal organs are opposed to muscular pain?
Avatar n tn He had a childhood injury to this knee, then another operation 13 years ago but is crying with the pain most of the time and has gone from ordinary pain killers to needing morphine. He has physiotherapy 3 times per week, also hydrotherapy and acupuncture, they all say he is making some progress but very slowly and keep telling him exercising will relieve the pain.
Avatar n tn All fusion surgeries carry a risk of permanent post-op pain, and it appears that the likelihood of such pain increases as you move up the spine. Perhaps this is due to the very high density of fine nerve fibers in the head and neck region. Part of the problem lies in the fact that to obtain access to the regions to be fused, large quantities of otherwise unrelated nerve fibers are subject to trauma as they are pulled and pinned back to clear the working field for the surgeon.
Avatar n tn I am unable to find out whether the pain is due to blockage or due to some other reason (acidity, gas, low bp). But this pain worries me since my MI in 2007 which left me with EF of 30-35%, an ICD, LAD stented, LCx 100% blocked and some other blocks in minor arteries. The reason for my MI was also throat pain but in different area of throat. Because of this throat pain I live in fear of next heart attack. I think I may not survive it due to my low EF.
Avatar dr m tn Untreated obstructive sleep apnea can lead to chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack and stroke. Knowing all these benefits of breathing through your nose, however, doesn’t help much if you don’t know why you’re not able to do so. To stop mouth breathing, the first thing you must do is to figure out what’s blocking up your nose. What Can Stop Up Your Nose Nasal congestion is something everyone experiences now and again.
