Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.
Avatar m tn Mine always look and feel like the classic symptoms of a heart attack.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. It needs to be assessed to what extent the pumping capacity of the heart has been affected by the damaged heart muscle. This is reflected by the ejection fraction. If this is good then there is unlikely to be exercise intolerance or fatigue. The ejection fraction is a useful measure of left ventricular performance. The normal range is 63-77% for males and 55-75% for females. It reflects the pumping capacity of the heart.
Avatar f tn Felt like i was having a heart attack in the shower this morning and again tonight.
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 s which is pretty darned scary until i chose to have an ablation to get rid of the issues and it worked and to this day i still take an aspirin a day as a safety net even tho it was a successful procedure.

1252322 tn?1270553169 Has he been tested for mononucleosis? Has he had his heart and blood pressure checked recently? Symptom checker on this site says headache, tiredness and cough can be symptoms of mono. It also says that tiredness, cough, and dizziness can be signs of a heart attack & if the pain is in his left shoulder, I know that can be another sign of a heart attack in males. It also says •Head ache •Body ache •Cough •Dizziness •Tiredness are alls symptoms of flu and the common cold.

1612565 tn?1298338111 I am not trying to scare you and hope i am not but as women we all need to keep an eye on our health and if something is telling you in the back of your mind that something is wrong remember the last indicator for a womans heart attack is that we feel a feeling of doom up until a month before the incident occurs if it is coupled with flu like symptoms...keep an eye on it Wanda and if you still feel like something is still wrong head to the E,R, please let us know if that happens and take care.
Avatar f tn 30 am with symptoms of heart attack. Rapid heart rate, pain in chest, jaw, left arm and nausea. Went to ER. SVT, subsided with out intervention.
Avatar n tn Heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women. However, some studies suggest that there is an increased risk of premature heart disease in South Asians, an increased risk in African-Americans, and potentially a lower risk in Hispanic Americans. I am not aware of specific data regarding Jewish males.
1161697 tn?1266960610 felt anxious all day, at one point thinking I was having symptoms of a heart attack.
Avatar f tn I replied to the other post you had up asking for your age (guess it was deleted). At 25 I would say you are pretty safe from a heart attack. Not saying it dosn't happen to young people but it is pretty rare and usually only from drug use or congenital probelms. You also post you have shortness of breath. On the other post I advised you should probably see the doctor if that is new to you as it is easy to get pneumonia since you probably have not been taking deep breaths.
Avatar n tn The normal range is 63-77% for males and 55-75% for females. It reflects the pumping capacity of the heart. What is your EF now? Ectopic beats can interfere with cardiac functioning and cause symptoms of breathlessness. Other causes like anemia can also cause breathlessness. lease discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
Avatar m tn recently I have been having these funny little episodes with my heart I get breathless then my heart does these half beats where it feels like its trying to stop then goes back to normal heart rate the doctor did say to me that it was eptopic beat but didnt explain anything to me. which as it does stresses you out even more. I feel like I am going to faint when these episodes happen. I dont drink do drugs I eat really healthy and I do smoke cigarettes which am trying to give up.
Avatar f tn This one i know for sure....especially in males....when the fetus is in the womb and it is a male the heart actually begins developing on the left side of the neck as a fetus and then drops down into position as the fetus grows..thus the reasoning behind males having pain on the left side of the body during a heart attack, angina, etc.
Avatar m tn My struggle with your post is the percentages that are stated. Yes, it is true that 65% of males don't have symptoms before a heart attack, but what you don't know is what state their health was in before the heart attack. You don't know if they were smokers, had high BP, high cholesterol, family histories or what. They may have been heart attacks waiting to happen.
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 m tn Unfortunately there is no single test (or battery of tests) that can predict who will have a heart attack. Risk factors for having heart disease include the following: age (males >45, women > 55), history of diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, family history of heart disease (first degree relative < 55 (males) or < 65 (females).
937826 tn?1261333879 after getting home from having my asthma attack I was rushed back in for chest pain.at hospital they took the oxygen out of my nose at 4 liters and put me on oxygen mask at 10 liters I was having so much trouble breathing my oxygen sat was 55 .

4237975 tn?1351595953 This slow movement can cause a decreased ejection fraction, which reflects the pumping capacity of the heart. The normal range is 63-77% for males and 55-75% for females. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn some one on another website i go to for my mitral valve prolapse once said that when they had their heart attack, that there was no way you could mistake it was a heart attack. So lets hope your not really suffering a heart attack. Anxiety can be amazing with the symptoms it can create for people. I know that for my self i was housebound for awhile with bad anxiety that made me think i was dying. Good luck and hope you feel better soon.
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.
Avatar n tn After I heard the results, I started feeling better and have felt fine (no heart attack symptoms) for two weeks. Then a couple days ago I heard a story about someone having an aortic aneurysm and at that point I started thinking more and more about it (and what if I am going to get it, etc.) until similar heart attack symptoms I was feeling earlier came back. I am pretty sure this is all anxiety caused (I do have a history of anxiety) but I am looking for just a little reassurance.
