Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack symptoms ecg


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 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 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 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 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 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 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 f tn When I asked how much damage was done to the heart, I was told none. How is this possible without it being a heart attack. I didn't have a clot ,and I had a nstemi attack. T wave abnormaliries on my ECG Thanks for any help.
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 f tn Your husband should be scheduled for an echocardiogram to determine if there was a heart attack!? If there were a heart attack, the results would be evident as there would be heart wall movement impairment. The impairment, if serious would reduce heart contractions and as a consequence a low cardiac output. The low cardiac output and if the underlying cause is not treated will eventually lead to heart failure (my experience).
1127040 tn?1289718662 Just to give my own case, I had my first heart attack without any symptoms at all. The cardiologist noticed it only during a routine ekg and was not able to say whether the heart attack occurred recently or years ago ! On the other hand, I had two episodes of chest pain and the doctors could not find a cause. One doctor suggested that it could pericardiatis or infection of the sac (percardium) which holds the heart in place.
Avatar m tn ( , Can i trust the doctor that there is nothing wrong with my heart as he sent me home
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 Sorry forgot to add my family history - Grandmother (father's side) died age 62 from thyroxin poisoning - had a heart attack at first and then did not take thyroid medication (v sad story but I won't go into it now - consensus was the thyroid issues may have caused the first attack), also grandfather (mother's side) experienced angina in early 50s, and then died aged 75 from first heart attack.
Avatar m tn I went for a ECG 3 weeks ago and yesterday the doctor called me in YESTERDAY saying that I had a heart attack but it could be a false positive because sometimes the techs screw up the leads and she says it doesnt make sense since i exercise, have low bp, cholesterol,sugar,working out and eating healthy. Why would she call me 3 weeks later? Obviously she wasn't too concerned right? She wanted me to go do a follow up ECG at the local clinic.
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 He then made my do a echo and a stress test, which lead him to conclude that my heart was doing fine, and that i had no heart attack. My ejection fraction was 70%. Is a high ejejction fraction enough evidence against heart attack. Can I trust this heart specialist when he says that there was no heart attack on the grounds of an echo and a stress test.
Avatar n tn He has been suffering with this pain for a long time and is very stubborn refuses to see a doctor until today.He previously had a heart attack 8 years ago and 3 years also had his heart jump started as it had gone out of rympth ---- he now does not want to go to the cardioligist -- would this condition lead to a full blown heart attack.He is out of breath with just taking a few steps.If he wants to do anything physical he just cannot do it as the pain comes back and the exhaustion.
1215847 tn?1266443248 In 2002 I had a heart attack and triple bypass surgery. Prior to that I knew something was wrong but doctors could not find anything. Just two weeks before I had my heart attack I had a nuclear stress test that showed I was fine. Since then my health has declined and no ... [More] w I'm told I'm in stage 3/4 COPD. I believe it was caused by the heart/lung bypass machine because I'd never had problems with my breathing before.
Avatar n tn ECG is not a very good source to determine heart conditions other than arrhythmia. Artefacts can cause a false positive and that includes medication. An infarct indicates heart muscle damage from a prior heart attack. If the doctor is concerned, there would be further testing such as an echo.
Avatar n tn When the ambulance arrived, they noted a number of unusual readings from an ECG and though I was having a heart attack. I was given asprin and rushed to hospitals resus. ward where blod samples where taken and I was given morphine. By that point the ECG calmed down, and I was back to normal rythm. I remember them saying, I had abnormal t wave inversions, and somthing about my q wave. Sorry I can't be more specific.
Avatar n tn The doctor came to conlusion that bot the the ECGs are identical and nothing to worry. She was telling me that my heart is never going to be perfect after the the heart attack so as a result ECG will also not be normal. my question is, can this be true? also the doctors at the hospital were saying my ECG was not normal but they let me go home. They didn't give me any explaination at that time.
Avatar f tn My family Doc said that since I am basically healthy and my vitals are great, he feels these slight changes on ecg are probably due to the chest trauma affecting the ecg signals. He said my heart is probably fine but the old trauma was preventing the tech from getting an accurate reading on the ecg. He said a nuclear stress test is the only way to tell for sure. My question: can old chest trauma affect the accuracy of future ecg's?
Avatar m tn t seems to take so due to my age and the ECG report but I am paranoid because all my symptoms are matching to heart attack.
