Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack symptoms right shoulder pain


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 m tn this week i suddenly had a neck and shoulder pain on both sides.the right side was okay in few hours but still having pain in left side of neck and shoulder ..evry1 says cud be a muscle spasm..(This was the first time i experienced such pain).. Aftr 2 days now its a bit okay but i had mild pain in between my chest when i bent down to pick something.. What could all these be? Im worried if i will get a heart attack..Please pour in ur suggestions..
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 A little over a week ago I woke up with what felt like a pulled muscle in my neck, which causes stiff neck and pain in my neck and shoulder on the right side. Two days later, it had radiated up to my jaw and ear (still right side only) and sometimes would cause me to feel pain behind my right eye-sort of like a migraine. A day after that I had pain at the base of my skull on the right side alone with an almost burning sensation in my neck and shoulder.
Avatar m tn It is impossible to diagnose through internet but from the symptoms that you describe, a new obstruction of the OM stent could be one of the reasons behind your shoulder pain. I recommend you to consult your doctor to describe him your symptoms and define what kind of workup you will need. In the meantime just as a reminder, continue all the medications prescribed by your doctor and call 911 if the pain becomes persistent or progressive.
Avatar f tn I have a similar pain only it is mostly in my upper back right under the shoulder blade. I have been given numerous reasons from stomach pain to muscle pain to nerve pain. I have been told anything definitive by a doctor or anything, though. If you have pains in your chest and left side you should go to the ER and get checked out or see a doctor as that is one of the symptoms of heart trouble.
Avatar n tn I have had 2 episodes over the last two weeks where I have experienced sudden pain between shoulder blades accompanied by pain shooting through to my right jaw. Both times this occurred overnight around 5:am in the morning. This lasted for approx 15 minutes or so. Because I do not have high blood pressure or high colesteral, is this something I should be concerned about? Or could it be indigestion?
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 I have also had a constant pain in my left shoulder, deep on the inside, as well as pain in my upper back. Sometimes I have body aches that make me feel like I have the flu. I also have a dull pain in my left jaw and sometimes pain radiating down my neck. My doctor has run several tests including thyroid function, glucose, and some neurological studies. Everything comes back perfect, but I still feel bad. Could this be a heart condition?
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 feels like an arrow going thru...could it be reflux, angina, or heart attack, sometimes the sharp pain between my shoulder blades takes my breath.. Also, not much stress or worries in my world either...
Avatar f tn They sound similar to heart attack symptoms. If I woke up with pain like that, I'd have it checked out right away. Then again, since it happened while you were laying down, it could have been related to a stomach problem like acid reflux. But that can and should be treated too. Hope you'll make an appt. with your doctor.
597239 tn?1223778770 I got (and still have) right shoulder pain coincidently soon after a heart attack which happened mid June. However, I was comforted to find out (with an ultrasound) that it is just a physical tear. I'm doing some exercise (following physiotherapy) but may need cortisone soon. On the other hand, strong pain BETWEEN the shoulder blades which occurs simultaneously with chest pain is indicative of a heart problem or aortic dissection I understand and needs emergency treatment.
Avatar f tn This enduced a panic attack, cause again I thought I was having a heart attack. I called the DR and they got me right in. After a very extensive exam, the DR said he really felt as if there is a muscle, tendon or ligiment issue in the arm or shoulder. In fact he found a knot in my upper arm that when he pushed on it, IT HURT. I already had an appt scheduled for the next day with nurse practicioner for my yearly exam.
Avatar m tn Am I in risk of a heart attack? what can I do about this?
Avatar f tn I also have a constant burning/pain in my right shoulder and up the right side of my neck. It started a month or so ago. I noticed a shooting/ burning pain that went from the back of my wrist to my upper elbow. First I thought I'd slep on it wrong but after a couple of days the pain increased. I was concerned that I was having a stroke or heart attack. The pain/burning has moved up into my shoulders and the burning is constant. I feel pain when I lift my arms or movement.
Avatar m tn m now experiencing pains on the left side of my chest, shoulder pain and at times, numbness in my fingers (usually just my left hand, but occasionally the right hand too). I'm currently in a part of Thailand with really basic medical centres. Is this something I should seek immediate medical attention for? Thank you in advance for your advise.
Avatar m tn I'm a 14 year old guy. I've been having heart attack symptoms for days. A dull pain in the front of my left shoulder and dull squeezing pain in my left bicep (happens separately most of the time). I also have a lighter dull pain on the left side of my neck. I have some chest pain a little to the left of the center, more caused by squeezing my arms together and flexing my pecs. The left side of my body (including face and ear muscles) have a "weak" sensation.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend came over to my place Saturday morning, he brought breakfast for everyone, and a new game for our Wii which we all played happily until I had to take my 3 kids to thier Dad's place. I also took my youngest son (his Daddy is my boyfriend) so he could nap in the car. It was decided that when I got back into town I pick up my boyfriend and we go out shopping.
Avatar n tn s right under my shoulder blades. constant sharp pain feels like somethings in my throat as well. I thought it was heart burn as i suffer from acid refluc but i took a zantac a hour and a half ago and there is no relief.
Avatar n tn I had the same sensation. It even got to the point that I thought it was a heart attack because the pain eventually got up to my shoulder. It was carpal tunnel. They gave me a **** up splint for my wrist and I havent had it since.
Avatar n tn A heart attack can be silent, meaning there are no symptoms until death or symptoms of heart failure. Heart failure from a heart attack could indicate there had been heart muscle damage and the heart could not adequately pump a sufficient supply of blood to the system....the heart will enlarge and the enlarged heart can cause an arrhythmia and heart arrest.
Avatar f tn Oh, dear. This signals a stroke or heart attack. Whomever is having these symptoms MUST go straight to the ER, and if they cannot transport themselves, call 9-1-1. That numbness on one side and nausea is a sure-fire sign of stroke, and it must be treated within a certain period of time to prevent damage from becoming permanent or disabling.
Avatar m tn I had the shoulder pain, nausea, and a bit of acid reflux also right after surgery. I was fine for a few days and now this sharp pain in the right shoulder. I think it is worse when I take a deep breath. I am glad to hear that someone else has had the same symptoms and I am not going crazy. So thanks for posing the comment.
Avatar f tn Right sided pain radiating to the back and right shoulder after a cholecystectomy points to a possible stone in the common bile duct or sphincter of oddi dysfunction. You can still get stones after gallbladder surgery. You should be your gp and have some blood work done. If there is some kind of blockage your enzymes will be elevated. You should have a ultrasound of the abdomen also.
