Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack symptoms wiki


Avatar m tn t have anxiety when having a heart attack. Also, many of us can have different symptoms. I did not have the common symptoms of chest pain, sweating, arm pain, none of that, not even anxiety when it was happening. What I recommend to anyone is listening to your body. If you feel like anything strange is going on, get to the hospital. If you're a woman like I am, research symptoms. Women, and some men do not always have the common symptoms.
Avatar m tn Hey forum. I'm a 20yo Male; 5'10 in height and a whopping 300 pounds. I've been experience symptoms of a heart attack and it's put my life on a halt, I don't know what else to do anymore. I've been to the ER a few times and my doctor multiple times. I've had all kinds of tests done. EKG, ultra sound, stress test, Cat scan, blood test and they all came out normal somehow, it's so frustrating. Symptoms: Chest pain or pressure at times and arm pain.
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 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 n tn i sometimes jup when i am about to fall asleep, i am usually dreaming that i am falling, and just before i hit the ground my body jumps and wakes me up!! ive heard that if you hit the ground in your sleep it can cause a heart attack! does anybody know if this is true?
Avatar m tn After 15 days I experienced Chest pain and left leg pain so I went to ER thinking its a heart attack. They repeated my blood test, EKG and performed a CAT scan of chest. Everything came back normal and was sent home. Again after a month I experienced very fast Heartbeat and nausea and went to ER thinking i have having a heart attack. My BP was 150. can't rmr the other num. They repeated my Blood test, two x-ray. Everything came back normal and I was said i have tachycardia.
Avatar n tn This is not the kind of adrenal you get from being scared, but the kind of adrenal from exercise, chocolate, caffeine and licorice. 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.
Avatar m tn I'm not a doctor, but I understand people can be having a heart attack and still have a normal or near normal blood pressure. Heart attacks in women don't always include the same/typical symptoms as they do in men. Also, it's fairly common in women that symptoms of a heart attack come and go--so just because the clear up doesn't mean you're not having a heart attack. Better safe than sorry, right? I would seek medical attention immediately. First, take a 325 mg.
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 f tn I am a 47 year old female, family history of heart attack. I have been on bp meds for 5 years. I have not been feeling well for a few months. My BP fluctuates - it is better after taking my bp med Lysoprine. Last night I had a spell and my legs were shaky, clammy, sweaty, and nauseous. then I yawned uncontrollably for 10-15 minutes. My neck became sore and stiff. The feeling passed, but a Blood pressure check a couple of hours later revealed 180/109. I checked it 3 times.
Avatar f tn Yes, it is possible to have had a silent heart attack. Symptoms would be shortness of breath, chest pains, etc. These symptoms would be the result of a low cardiac output caused by impaired and damaged heart walls because of the heart attack. I had a silent heart attack about 7 years ago. You shouldn't be overly concerned about the results of an EKG. Thanks for sharing your experience, and if you have any followup questions, you are welcome to ask. Take care.
Avatar n tn My uncle had a heart attack and the 2D Echo test has show EF as 18%. What does this mean? how criticical is the stage.
994817 tn?1249738278 Some people confuse heart attack with symptoms of an MI (myocardial infarction). Infarction means heart muscle damage. An infarct is an area of necrotic (dead) cells in heart tissues. An MI (heart attack) can not go on very long without cardiac arrest. Symptoms can go on and off, etc. for a very long time or can result quickly to a heart attack (MI). If you are have heart related heart pains (angina), that condition can slowly or quickly damage heart cells.
Avatar f tn Recently had a EKG (actually two) and it suggested a prior mild heart attack. I am scheduled by my cardiologist for a nuclear stress test. I was questioned about any chest pains and could remember none. However, I do remember that my dentist a number of yrs. ago, injected novocaine and I had a terrible reaction, shakiness , flushed and having a difficult time breathing. The doctor said sometime the injection will go straight into my blood system and cause this .
Avatar f tn Hi, im an 18 year old female I weigh about 160, my mother & sister has high blood pressure, other than that no family heart issues/attacks. For the past 4 days my left arm (upper) and my left coller bone has been aching, I wouldn't say pain.. its more like pulling a muscle feeling and also my left side of my neck, it can really feel it if I lean forward.
Avatar f tn None of us here can tell you if it's a heart attack, if you are having symptoms and are concerned, call 911 or go to the ER, it's ot worth taking the chance.
Avatar m tn Unless you already have heart disease such as a previous heart attack, you don't need to do anything for a Right Bundle Branch Block. This is a bundle of nerves that runs down the right front of your heart that sends the electrical implulses for the muscle to beat. Sometimes the signal is interrupted which is a RBBB. This is a vary common finding and usually of no significance. There are no meds or tests required to treat this.
Avatar n tn There would have to be a very serious underlying heart condition to cause your heart to stop, and in almost all cases, you would have symptoms that something was wrong. Are you having problems with anxiety that we can help with?
