Heart attack arm swelling

Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack arm swelling


Avatar m tn A man beside me told me that he had had a heart attack a week ago. He said that the only pain he felt was in his left arm. He also had some numbness in his arm. He went to the ER. They rushed him into the cath lab and placed a stent in one of his coronary arteries. He saved himself any real damage to the muscle of the heart, by acting on his instinct. He looked just fine to have had a heart attack a week before.

Avatar f tn had a panic attack about my sore arm, was worried I was having a heart attack.
Avatar n tn I have been feeling a numbness in my left arm. It feels tingling and heavy. I also have pressure in my ear...sometimes it feels as if my head will explode. I feel very heavy and fatigue. I had bloodwork, CT scan and MRI test done. Waiting for the MRI test to come back.
Avatar n tn I would advise you to obtain urgent medical help as the chest pains may be symptom of a heart attack and the swelling in the lower extremities heart failure. Seek emergent medical help immediately.
Avatar n tn d suggest to anyone having your symptoms to go to the ER. I had similar pains when I had my heart attack. Even jaw pain can be a sign of a heart attack. It's not something to take lightly. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn She has had just about all the test done to check her heart and the doctors say now her heart is in perfect condition! She had the heart attack about five months ago and two stents were placed and she sustained no damage to the heart. There was a third blockage that the doctor said was small and that blood thinners would take care of it. She ended up back in the hospital a couple of weeks ago and had the third stent placed for that small blockage which grew to 80%. The last cath.
Avatar n tn The next day his chest and arm was very sore and he was very tired. Is this symptoms of a heart attack? I made him a Doctors appointment but he cancelled it. He doesn't believe it was anything to really worry about. He said..... it's just stress. I'm worried!!!!!! Heart disease runs in his family.

Avatar n tn You need to go to a hospital or your doctor and let them evaluate you as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn I have swelling under my right arm, in my right shoulder, and down my right arm. When I went to shower tonight I noticed dark blue, bulging veins in my right shoulder and chest and down my right arm. This scared me. Not sure how its related.
17567 tn?1276202029 So, awhile back I started getting left arm pain, which is generally a wake up sound for a heart attack? Rather than ignore it and hope it goes away I actually did something about it... and went to a cardiologist. After a few tests he tells me my heart is fine but by cholesterol is very high (260) and puts me on lipitor. Cardiologists are very big on driving blood pressure and cholesterol down towards zero needless to say.
Avatar n tn For about the last 8 months to a year I have been having pain in my right breast, in the right arm pit and down my right arm. Some days the pain is so bad I can barely use my arm. I find the pain is worse approx. a couple days before my period. I just had a physical done and the doctor said that there is some swelling under my right armpit. She figures it is more muscle pain then anything and is sending me for physio.
Avatar m tn He never went to the doc. Maybe it is brought on by chopping ice or shoveling? He had a heart attack at 61 and had a stent put in.
Avatar f tn Im having a tingling in my left arm and i feel kinda funny behind my left breast could this be a heart attack...i do hae small vessell ichemia,,,and i also have bad anxiety,,im on ativan,risperdal and remeron.....
Avatar f tn I had a heart attack 7 weeks ago. Now my left arm is going numb again. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn 30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might have brought it on. I was sitting all snugly & warm on a cold evening, with my purring cat in my lap, reading an interesting story my friend had sent me, and actually thinking, 'A-A-h, this is the life, all cozy and warm in my soft, cushy Lazy Boy with my feet propped up.
Avatar f tn I have been told I have a heart murmur and while I was pregnant I was preeclamptic and I had to have several ECG because of fast and irregular heart beats so far I have not been told I have anything wrong with my heart but last night I started having sudden left arm pain in the lower forearm and upper should so I am a little freaked out considering my health history so I am wondering if this could be heart related and if so should I be worried?
Avatar n tn She has a known history of heart problems. The pain keeps her from being able to even lift her arm or stand on her leg. Every now and then they both swell up and become numb. She has been to the ER twice for the pain, and since they can't do an MRI without a doctors refferal they keep calling it a "pinched nerve". Im concerned that it is more then just a pinched nerve. can anybody else think of something it could be?
Avatar n tn I seriously felt like I was having symptoms of a heart attack and was freaking out a bit. Maybe some of the freaking out amplified the symptoms. My parents seem to think this is all in my head. I took some Ibuprofen and relaxation medicine and that seemed to help. Right now I still feel a bit left chest and left arm discomfort although not as intense. After having normal ECG the doctor gave me some stomach medicine thinking it was that. Should I be worried? Thanks!
