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 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.
19079998 tn?1472020580 When you have chest or back pain associated with eating, you look more for gall bladder or pancreatitis, especially if you're young and female. However, because you may have a family history of heart problems, it would be a good idea to talk with your doctor.
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 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!
429700 tn?1308007823 My 38 female friend had a heart attack and really had a hard time convincing ER staff that she was indeed having a heart attack. Just because she was young and female. She wound up having open heart surgery with a quad bypass, so NEVER take chest pain for anything like indegestion or a muscle strain, it COULD BE a heart attack.
1814992 tn?1316890851 Doctor checked only my blood pressure which was normal and refused to do further checking of heart , telling that I might be very young to have heart attack. Please , help me to understand this symthoms... Thank You in advance!
Avatar m tn You should get it checked out, I doubt if it's cardiac in nature as pain related to your heart don't usually persist over many days or weeks, but better to be safe. Ask your doctor about costochondritis, it is an inflammation of the joints where your ribs meet your sternum and can cause the symptoms you describe. It can come on with a virus or injury or just by laying or bending the wrong way. It's worth mentioning, but do get checked out to be safe.
Avatar f tn Rushed myself to the ER and had blod pressure. EKG, Blood Work, Chest X-Ray, ECG and Stress Test. All show negative towards heart attack and normal. They labled this anxiety although I had no stress in my life. The next week couple of weeks I had heart palpitations. I wore a loop recorder for a week and found nothing. Then the third week after being discharged I felt my body having pins and needles feeling for one week at night only and have muscle tremor and jerks.
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.
994817 tn?1249738278 And if they can, what type of history do teenage heart attack victims usually have in order to get one? Do my symptoms just sound like typical anxiety symptoms? And could I possibly be a rare case where even though my history is all good I have a serious heart problem? Or is that just pretty darn unusual? I am currently seeing a primary Dr. and had an EKG and chest x-ray that came back normal. I had blood work done but have not gotten the results yet.
Avatar f tn For example, if the patient is a young female without risk factors (i.e. no smoking, no diabetes, no high cholesterol, and no family history) the probability of a chest pain to be a heart attack is very low and stress, anxiety or anguish. In contrast, a male >65 yo and multiple risk factors, a new chest pain will have a moderate to high probability to be a heart attack.
Avatar n tn Could I have possible had a heart attack? I am a 38 yr. old female. Also, if I were to be okay for the evening and go see my doc tomorrow, would he be able to tell if I indeed had a heart attack with blood work or EKG? Thanks so much!
Avatar m tn Ever since two years ago, I've had palpitations and irregular heart rythms that doctors ruled out as stress for being a highschool student. However this year was a little different, my heart symptoms got a little worse causing me to feel dizzy, short of breath, and even have feelings of blacking out. I went to a physician who took an EKG and a holter monitor. The results came back as a slight irregularity in my heart.
Avatar f tn Both of my hands had sharp shooting pain & numbness all th way to the middle of my forearm. It lasted the whole night & it was difficult to sleep by the next morning it was still hurting & it finally went away about two hours after I had awaken. Shortly sfter my heart began to flutter often. It's actually starting to frightn me now as it flutters more often now. I smoke cigarettes & I am in the process of quitting.
4410657 tn?1354153494 I would think it was the Hiatal Hernia, especially if the sliding type. When you were laying down, part of the Stomach would have been protruding into your chest, but when you stood up it would have gradually slid back down due to gravity. Upper digestive system problems can give symptoms VERY similar to heart attacks or Angina attacks. I've had a heart attack and an inflamed Esophagus felt exactly the same.
Avatar m tn If you're gay or lesbian and had a heart attack at a young age plz reply. I'm scared and angry.
Avatar f tn Sweetwaterguy is right. You are obviously young and your symptoms are far from normal. Are you being treated for depression? Besides weight gain, what are the side effects of the drugs you are taking? It could be many things, not just cardiac. Have you had your thyroid checked out?
Avatar n tn Recently turned 18 in September, Female. have been having heart attack symtpoms for the past 3 days and it seems to be getting worse . Almost Every symptom of a heart attack I have been having. (Arm pain, jaw pain, random chest pains, sometimes back pains, tingling feeling under chin for some reason) But itll be one pain that will show up, then that will go away, then something else, then that goes away and repeat. Why is this happening to me?
Avatar f tn hello Anna, Above all else, you should at least talk to your doctor about what happened. In the meantime, I can at least tell you a few things. You said you were having a severe constipation episode; when a person strains he is giving himself what is called a Valsalva response in the body. For a few seconds the heart stops beating and then when it resumes, sometimes you will feel strong heartbeats, sometimes the rate will be a bit faster than normal until it regulates itself back to the norm.
Avatar f tn s been getting worse and I have read more than once that these are all symptoms that precede a heart attack in women. I am almost 23 5'9 142Lbs, and I have a pretty bad diet honestly. But there is also a high rate of heart disease on both sides of my family. My great grandmother died at 51 from a massive heart attack, as did her son. My grandfather had a quadruple bypass before he was 50, my mom has had mild heart attacks.
Avatar f tn I am a 29 year old female. I don't smoke (any more), I don't drink caffeine (any more), and I consume absolutely no artificial sweeteners or soda (any more). I've suffered off and on with panic and anxiety for about 9 years. This past October, I started having panic attacks again, and they all felt like a heart attack. I had random pains in my chest and under my sternum. My arms hurt and my jaw sometimes feels tight.
