Heart attack symptoms right shoulder pain

Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack symptoms right shoulder pain


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 Chest pain right in the center of my chest It came and then went away and has returned but not as sever It felt like a squeezing sensation but also a shrp pain extending outward. I then had a sharp pain in my lower back, then right shoulder and then my stomach. It left me gasping for air and i got a bit lightheaded, maybe dizzy and nauseated. I have a heart murmur too soo not sure if that had a role to play. I dont know if this is a heart attack or maybe an anxiety attack or what.
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 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 f tn He does have a history of chest pain from cervical problems and nerve damage in his shoulder, he knew this pain was diferent and told me to call the ambulance he was having a heart attack and than passed out. He had blood work done in Jan. his hs-crp was 13.9, which our g/p put him on a satin. His homoscystein level was 23.4 and was put on foltx. I just cannot believe this happened, it seems like something was overlooked since you do not become 100% in a year, at least not to my knowledge.
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 To be safe I would have it checked then if it turns out to be a pinched nerve at least you can go ahead and have it treated with the peace of mind that your heart is fine.
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 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 I would point out that chest/arm/jaw pain are the classic symptons of a heart attack. However, it is important to realize that not everyone has the classic signs of a heart attack. Up to 25% are thought to be silent heart attacks with no obviuos symptons. Women may not experience chest pain; instead they feel nauseous, shortness of breath, sweating, pain in the shouldrs, etc. I am a 54 year old male.
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 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 m tn Chest pain Arm pain Back pain in the center/upper left shoulder blade Pain in the jaw-line Fullness in the chest (almost like a short period of asthma) I also notice that sometimes I get very hot, to the point that I am sweating... all while in a very air-conditioned apartment with 2 fans on me. Sometimes I start to get dizzy, as if the room spins for a split second. I have also gotten a "lump in the throat" sort of feeling.
987762 tn?1331031553 BUT THERE IS NO WAY TO TELL IF THIS IS YOUR HEART UNTIL YOU HAVE AN ECG AND BLOOD TESTS TO TRACK LEVELS OF CARDIAC ENZYMES THERE IS NO SURE CORRELATION BETWEEN DEGREE OF DISTRESS AND SEVERITY OF HEART DAMAGE DURING A HEART ATTACK. You may be right about all your explanations for these symptoms but even when a diagnosis of MS is certain, we can't afford to assign every body malfunction we experience to it. MS is capable of intruding on nearly every aspect of our being.
Avatar n tn I've been told that the ectopic beats won't cause a heart attack and that a heart attack is usually caused by a lack of blood flow to the heart which I do not have. I'm kind of a worrier. I don't have high blood pressure or diabetes and I'm 36 - 5'8"/140lbs. So, my question is, can stress alone cause a heart attack? I was told it is typically a secondary risk factor to the major risk factors - overweight etc. I've had anxiety and panic attacks and my psychologist wants me to face my fears.
994817 tn?1249741878 I get dizzy, out of breath, chest/rib pain for very long periods of time, sore muscles, back pain, left and right shoulder pain, jaw/toothache, inner and outer body tingles, chest tickles that cause a cough, extreme fatigue and weakness, upper abdominal pain below the left breast, and extremely fast, terribly freighting heart palpitations. Most symptoms come and go, but the strong heart palpitations and body/chest pains are usually there all day long. But I am only a 17 year old female.
Avatar n tn I found the below 'definition' on the American Heart Association web board. "Heart Attack" What is a heart attack? A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle itself -- the myocardium -- is severely reduced or stopped. The medical term for heart attack is myocardial infarction. The reduction or stoppage happens when one or more of the coronary arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle is blocked.
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.
1433834 tn?1283467081 but as far as symptoms go, you have a couple that suggest a heart problem (mild heart attack?). I'd suggest you look up the symptoms of a heart attack and do a match. At you age it is unlikely but still possible. I don't remember what the arm symptom is for a HA, but you description is in the ball park of what I remember. Still, the back pain, if it is really in the back, not chest, I'd say that is not a HA symptom, best I can recall.
2093196 tn?1332958304 At that time my tongue became numb and lasted for about 15 minutes. After the bath I felt better all but my heartbeat, arm pain and back pain. The pain was not severe and I was able to sleep. This morning I have just a little pain in the left side shoulder blade and constant feelings of dizziness though not bad and concern, and a little numbing off and on in the roof of my mouth, my fingers, and currently my upper lip. What to do?
Avatar n tn I just experienced pain in my up right shoulder and weakness and some pain down my right arm...The pain subsided in about ten minutes... after the pain subsided I felt a tingling on my left hand finger tips... Do you have any idea as to what may be happening....?
8984723 tn?1401018019 Since the stent procedure, I have had lots of chest pain, sometimes like a stabbing feeling in the heart, at other times, pain radiating down my arms, shoulder and neck. Most usually this is accompanied by violent burping and indigestion. It can happen at any time, and most usually when I am at rest. It happens a lot throughout each day. I was told when I went to ER last week that this is probably angina, but I never had it before, and thought stenting relieved the symptoms of angina.
Avatar n tn This one started by increasing pins and needles in left arm, which progressed to pain in shoulder blade, shoulder, and in armpit. Then got chest pain and the pins and needles increased in left arm and really sharp in outside two fingers. While sitting my blood pressure was 130/90 and pulse was 86 and when standing up my blood pressure was 102/69 and pulse was 115. The main episode lasted about two hours and once it was over I felt really tired.
Avatar n tn What really shocked me was the lack of any of the typical symptoms - I had no heavy chest pain, I had no back pain, I had no jaw pain, I had no left arm pain. Three weeks ago my mother had a heart attack. Her symptoms were that she was vomiting all day even though she had no food left in her stomach after the first few hurls. We interpreted this as food poisoning and didn't go to the ER about 9 hours later.
Avatar f tn With the meds and diet, my total cholesterol is 98, ldl 40, HDL 49 and tris are 44. I have no chest pain or shortness of breath. My cardiologist told me that my heart attack was "large" one; my EF was 40% and is now 45%. Although not a diabetic, I have to watch my blood sugar. I lost about 30 lbs last year learning how to watch the carbs. All in all, I feel like a pretty lucky guy. It could have been much worse. I have a second chance and am taking full advantage.
Avatar f tn He has been having horrible pain between his shoulder blades that won't let up. I say go to the doctor, he said the PSA level tells if he has any other cancer anywhere in his body. Really? Also, he is an extremely heavy drinker. I was thinking his esphagus could be eroding??? Any help is appreciated. He hates going for a physical.
Avatar n tn This is not harmful but produces symptoms of heart racing at times, breathing problems from heart racing, inability to climb stairs without heart racing and feeling out of breath and faint, aware of heart beating and pulses. If you can, increase your calcium intake to see if this helps. Make sure to get plenty of potassium from organic bananas and potatoes. Increase your Omega 3 if you haven't already done so. Hope you feel better.
Avatar f tn You say you don't know why you are scared of the idea that this might be heart pain. The reason is simple, given the tests you have undergone: You are most likely suffering from an ideƩ fixe, a kind of obsession. It is not rational, and will respond only to psychotherapy and possibly a tad of medication. I am not making a moral statement or a value judgment here; this is simply a matter of your biology. It is the way you were born.
