Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack stroke symptoms women


Avatar n tn Could I have possible had a heart attack? I am a 38 yr. old female. Also, if I were to be okay for the evening and go see my doc tomorrow, would he be able to tell if I indeed had a heart attack with blood work or EKG? Thanks so much!

1626968 tn?1299459984 s anxiety and given meds for that but still I have what seems to me to be mild symptoms of a heart attack and stroke. Should there be any other test I should take to rule out something that could result in something more serious like death?
Avatar f tn It may not have been a heart attack, but it could have been an insufficient supply of blood to heart cells with exertion of going up a stairway. Sometimes that can cause heart cell damage so you should see a doctor to have an exam to rule out out anthing serious which appears you have already done. It is difficult to know whether you should wait or have an immediate evaluation...I would call the dotor's office and ask for advice.
Avatar f tn You had the jaw thing going on and the arm sensation and those can be heart attack symptoms in a women. I believe they are all migraine but you should check. Do you still have the symptoms? The sooner the better , I would just go into the ER because they will get it all done . If you are ok then you are done. Your regular doctor won't get it all done in a day. The reason the sooner is not to freak you out it is that the treatment works better if it was a stroke.
Avatar n tn A stroke in dogs can also be a pre-warning of various heart conditions, including a heart attack. If treatment can begin early enough, further strokes and heart attack can be prevented.
Avatar m tn I'm not a doctor, but I understand people can be having a heart attack and still have a normal or near normal blood pressure. Heart attacks in women don't always include the same/typical symptoms as they do in men. Also, it's fairly common in women that symptoms of a heart attack come and go--so just because the clear up doesn't mean you're not having a heart attack. Better safe than sorry, right? I would seek medical attention immediately. First, take a 325 mg.
Avatar n tn to numbness, tingling and other annoying symptoms that make you feel like you are headed for the big one. Stroke/heart attack. It is good you are getting this checked out...if it all comes back negative I imagine you are having what so many women have with the symptoms. Many more too. Do not let it frighten you even though it is very frightening.
Avatar f tn I had a severe pain in my chest two years ago which eventually radiated all the way around to the middle of my back and, at the same time, experienced urgent diarrhea, loss of and vomiting. That was a heart attack. There are many other symptoms of a mild heart attack which doctors should know about but discount in women. You have to be insistent and real crabby if necessary. Hope you get the care you need, and fast!
Avatar f tn I started taking therapy i like it, but still i get this symptoms, every single day i stress about having a stroke or heart attack! Can someone help diagnose this? Is it serious or just anxiety?? Thanks for your patience, god bless.
Avatar n tn Two close relatives of my dad died recently with the symptoms of stroke/heart attack. They did go to see the doctor immediately but didn't make it. So, I would like to know what a person should do when a person suspects that somebody is having a heart attack or a stroke in addition to calling the doctor while they reach the hospital. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Im rather concerned that a side effect is Stroke-Heart Attack. Would you recommend any tests i should be having regarding my heart, and if so what and how often.
1310611 tn?1279923843 IT is usually high but not that high. In addition I had a heart attack at 29 and two minor ones since. I have had numerous angioplasties and angiograms........
Avatar n tn I have been told that heart attack symptoms are different in women than in men. What signs should a woman look for?
Avatar n tn I do, however, continue to recommend 162 milligrams daily (two low-dose aspirin) to patients who already have coronary heart disease, have already had a heart attack or stroke, or who are at high or moderate risk for one and not at risk for gastrointestinal bleeding. In addition, I now follow the recently revised American Diabetes Association guidelines for aspirin use in people with diabetes.
Avatar n tn These are very dangerous symptoms, please get her to a doctor ASAP. If she has another attack she needs to got the Hospital immediately, call 911.
1384238 tn?1286028762 I do not think a pinched nerve is going to make you feel woozy! Since you've apparently already had some heart problems, I'd go back to whomever provided your care when you went thru your arterial crisis and they can do tests to determine if it is indeed a clog in the vessel or whatever.
1399887 tn?1280698535 ) Bad heart palpitations throughout the attack. (May be a panic attack from the attack or anxiety in general).. The second to last attack that occured I actually tripped for brief momments.. Myself and the coach slid accross the floor feeling weightless getting closer to the wall.. I can feel them coming on, so I don't think they will pull my license. I was relieved that it wasn't cancer or a tumer etc.. Haha, I have to be optimistic.
Avatar n tn Heart muscle damage can happen with ischemia (lack of blood flow) causing heart cells to die from a myocardio infarction (MI) or heart attack and that can happen without symptoms (that happened to me...hospitalized with chf). The stroke happens due to lack of blood flow or pressures rupture the small vessels, etc. The prognosis depends on the underlying cause and the treatment thereof but I don't know the implication of a stroke for recovery (may require physical therapy).
Avatar f tn I actually just read a story about a woman having a heart attack the other day and unfortunately she did not make it with her baby. The added stress on your body from the baby puts you at higher risks for all kinds of things, apparently. In this case the increased blood flow is too much for your heart to handle and results in heart attacks in about 7% of women. I'm not too familiar with strokes other than the numbness, but I hope you are over the worst of it now.
1131131 tn?1275108488 I am so worried that it was some sort of stroke thing, i have been looking up stroke like symptoms now for two days. today was a little better, but the nurse had me take a half of a pill in the middle of the day and half tonight. She will call me in the morning to see how i am doing and talk with the shrink about it. I am scared that they might try to switch me to something totally different since at my last appt she talked about possibly adding abilify at a low dose to help boost the lexepo.
987762 tn?1331027953 t play around with it and I know MS presents a lot of symptoms but when they are symptoms that resemble a heart attack it is better to be safe than sorry. Don't take chances, go to the er and get the EKG and blood work if not for yourself then for your loved ones who are concerned.
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor, but to be on the safe side, I would get to your doctor or an urgent care clinic and be checked out. Better safe than sorry. Let us know what you find out.
Avatar f tn I literally walked into the emergency room with no heart attack nor stroke. Shortness of breath and almost passing out were the promary symptoms. Within 48 hours, they discovered after my admission that I had 98% blockage in three arteries. I bled out after my surgery (had to be resuscitated and was taken back into surgery to repair a ruptured artery.) I remained in a coma for 9 days and in the ICU for 21 days.
