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 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 f tn Traditionally she is too young to have a heart attack, but the symptoms you describe are classic signs of a heart attack... people can have heart attacks that go unnoticed but can be picked up in an EKG... i would take her to the hospital and have her worked up with blood work and EKG, etc.. Hope she is okay!!

Avatar m tn Were you able to have this checked by your doctor? Indeed, female heart attack symptoms can look very different than those of men. Aside from the chest pressure or discomfort men experience, women may have symptoms of shortness of breath, unexplained fatigue, or pressure in the lower chest, easily mistaken for a stomach ailment or gastrointestinal illness. Take care always and do keep us posted.
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 f tn Felt like i was having a heart attack in the shower this morning and again tonight.
Avatar m tn m 36, female, 130 lbs and in general good health however 2 weeks ago I was slammed in the chest by a ton of bricks in the form of what I had feared might be a heart attack. I believed I had all the symptoms, dizziness, short of breath, tingling and numbness in my left arm. I felt this was enough to get myself into the ER about 5 days later when my symptoms hadn't subsided sufficiently.
Avatar m tn A nurse has heart attack and describes what women feel when having one: Please read, pay attention, and send it on!... FEMALE HEART ATTACKS I was aware that female heart attacks are different, but this is the best description I've ever read. Women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms that men have ... you know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest & dropping to the floor that we see in movies.
Avatar f tn I understand your concern regarding your symptoms. Do you have history of increased blood pressure? While your symptoms are similar to heart attack, it seems unlikely especially if it has been there for 4 days. However, it is recommended that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Diagnostic tests such as electrocardiogram may be done. Acid peptic disease and musculoskeletal issues may need to be ruled out. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Heart attacks happen most oftenly in individuals who are older with multiple risk factors (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, history of smoking, diabetes, and family history of an early heart attack).
Avatar n tn Also, heart disease may possibly run in your family, as you mentioned your father died of a heart attack at such a young age. My advice to you is to see a cardiologist as soon as possible to get to the bottom of this. I wish you the best of luck.
Avatar f tn I know that these are common heart attack symptoms. Not sure what else would cause such symptoms. I would go get it checked out. Would rather be safe then sorry. Good luck and sending positive good vibes your way!
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 m tn Mine always look and feel like the classic symptoms of a heart attack.
Avatar n tn t good. no you are not too young to have a heart attack. STRESS can cause taht in itself. please please get check out for your sake, your life may depend on it, by the way being 16 you should qualify for some state medicaid. I have also never had anyone press on my breast to see if I were having a heart attack eben if I have a pulled muscle I have never had one pressing there.

I recently visited my physician regarding a somewhat irritating numbness localized in my left arm. I was told that it was nothing to worry about and that it is not likely to be a heart problem.
Avatar n tn I am a 28 year old female who on occation has a sharp pain around the heart that intesifys when I take a deep breath. I am unable to find a common trait on when these attacks occur. I am in otherwise good health and the pain seems to go away within 30-50 seconds. I have been having them on and off since I was about 16 and have always referred to them as "my heart attack" I don't want to miss any danger signs and being a young female I don't want the doctor to either.
Avatar n tn If you're female, these could be symptoms of a heart attack. Women can feel subtle discomfort, different than the typical movie heart attack - clutch your chest and collapse. Did the Tums help at all? Doesn't sound like they did much if you still have pain in your back, pressure in your throat and headache. No one wants to hang out in a hospital but if it's a blockage in one of your arteries, then time is muscle. The longer you wait, the greater damage to your heart.
Avatar m tn I did some research and found an anxiety attack, can mimick a heart attack,is the intense pain in the chest that lends itself to a heart attack.it is as if a vise is closing around the chest. The other symptoms are pain in the left arm and pain even in the neck area to raised pulse, sweating and dizziness these all can be an anxiety attack as well. But the pain in the chest like a steel band is being tightened seems to be the deciding factor that speaks of a heart attack.
