Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack symptoms ecg


967168 tn?1477584489 maybe maybe not? I know how quirky EKG/ECG machines are so I'm really hoping this time it's a false reading. My Primary found a new murmur and I've been so sick for about 5-6 months; not feeling right, more winded than normal, major headaches, different types of chest pain than before and ALOT more fainting spells even with my ICD.
Avatar f tn also there is a family history of heart disease...went to the er with these symptoms was told because of good blood work and good ekg and a low blood pressure that it wasn't my heart but a ulcer...but this pain was so totally different than 2010 when i had a bleeding ulcer and the symptoms are different than 2010....don't know what to do!!!
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!
Avatar n tn Does this sound like heart attack symptoms? I have been put on a prescription for beta blocker and given nitro spray, had an ecg, chest xray and blood tests but still waiting for results.
1481758 tn?1287638643 If you had the symptoms in ER, they would have done an ECG as one of the first tests, this is routine. An ECG isn't the most accurate diagnostic tool, but it would certainly show a heart attack occurring.
Avatar m tn 5mg but mostly doctor is saying to only take it if i feel very panic and is there any way of any problem to my heart due to stress and panic attack (though my ECG is normal)..doctor said im very healthy after doing blood,urine ,sugar and thyroid test and how can i become normal ...
Avatar n tn I am afraid that something else is wrong with my heart. I am afraid to go to sleep at night, thinking that I am going to have a heart attack and die. My questions are: 1. Can an anxiety attack occur during sleep and awaken you to this scenario? 2. Is it true that only anxiety could be calmed down and go away, whereas a heart problem would have continued on no matter what I did? 3. Would the ECG machine in emerg have picked up on an existing heart condition? 4.
Avatar m tn At the time I thought I was having a bad panic attack however now I wonder if I suffered a heart attack. I was under a lot of stress at the time drinking and smoking heavily. I didnt seek medical attention at the time because I didnt think it was possible to have a heart attack at my age. Over the last few years I had been living much healthier. I had stopped smoking was running a lot and I eat well. Is it possible I could have a damaged heart and still have been able to get extremely fit.
1570981 tn?1295831355 I was held at the ward yesterday, im having chest pain and dizziness, tunnel vision and shortness of breath. A trainee doctor indicates that im having a minor heart attack from the first ECG, so they run some blood test, and multiple ECG that night. That morning a senior doctor came and said i was fine, my heart is okay, the blood test shows im not having a heart attack. I asked her about, whether if its anxiety or something else, she says "maybe" it was from anxiety disorder.
Avatar n tn later the ECG results were that my brother had suffered minor heart attack...can that be true??that because of the nose bleeding he can have a heart attack???wht shoul he do...plz help me out...
Avatar f tn You need to go and have a blood test and at minimum an ECG. Please go to the hospital now.
Avatar m tn Sorry for all of your pain. It is always best to follow the doctors instructions and get the test done to at least lift a little of your worries. I do know that acid reflux and indigestion can causes many symptoms. I've had many different not traditional symptoms with mine, similar to what you're talking about. I've also heard that gerd can affect the vagus nerve and cause pvcs.

Avatar m tn The only way to be sure is to have an ecg and echo. I don't personally think it was a heart attack from your descriptions though.
Avatar n tn My mother died at age 66 of a massive heart attack. Is it possible that this episode is a symptom of heart disease or a pre curser to a heart attack? I should also mention that during rest I felt fine. When I was up moving around or moving my left arm is when I felt the pain. Also during the beginning of the attack it was very hard to take a deep breath. This would make the pain worse. If this was a heart attack or a symptom of one what steps should I take now that I am feeling ok?
Avatar f tn When the panic attacks first began I went to hospital thinking I was having a heart attack and the doctors took an ECG, both the charge nurse and the doctor (registrar) said the ECG was normal, they sent me home. Two days later, I had another panic attack and couldn't breathe so I went back to hospital, where another GP took an ECG and said it showed I had cardiomyopathy.
Avatar m tn im so scared because since 3 days ago i become short of breath and have rapid pulse with minimal movement i went to hospital thinking i have blocked arteries or something like that they made ecg with symptoms my pulse were 105 lying in the bed while doing the ecg, i was scared sure there be answers but the dr said, this is normal O.
Avatar n tn Dear Christine, The ecg tells us about the electrical patttern o fthe heart and from this we infer things about heart attacks. In your case the ECG was misleading and it sounds as though there was no heart attack. this may very well be GERD. But re adress these questions to your internist or cardiologist to be certain.
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 I am only 42 yrs old (female) and had scheduled an EKG following syptoms a month or so ago of left arm pain/ jaw numbness & nausea which prompted me to have concerns about a heart attack. The symptoms resided although now I've been light headed. I have high blood pressure controlled via medication. My EKG today showed findings of a right ventricular conduction delay and Twave anbormalities noting to consider anterior ischemia.
Avatar m tn The comments on the results were possible inferior infarct . Abnormal ECG. The next day I had a heart attack, requiring a stent. The ECG was ordered due to an eye operation due the next week. My doctor did not take any action, not even notifying me of the results of the ECG. results. I believe the doctor should have informed me of the results, and possible sent to the hospital.
469720 tn?1388146349 There is a commonly held belief that heart disease falls low on the list of causes of death and disability in women. Far from the truth-the following article from the NY Times addressess some of that misperception by the public Mention the term "heart attack" and most people imagine a pudgy, middle-aged man drenched in sweat and clutching his chest. Few people seem to consider cardiovascular disease (CVD) as a woman's disease.
Avatar f tn But it is possible to have had a mild heart attack and no symptoms. I had no symptoms or warning of having had a silent heart attack until congested heart failure and ICU for several days to stabilize oxygen levels, stent implant, etc.. It is proper protocol to follow up with further testing if the EKG is positive.
Avatar m tn I have a history of heart disease in my family as my father had a heart attack at age 45 and survived, my uncle recently died in his sleep of a heart attack aged 55. I want to get this resolved and return to normal ASAP.
