Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack treatment timing

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 n tn t take too long, but much depends on what the doctor saw. If there were just minor abnormalities the heart attack timing may have just been a coincidence and having received the results sooner may not have made a difference. A normal stress test is about 65% accurate so it may have given some advanced warning as well. Why did your father have an EKG in the first place? Was he symptomatic?
Avatar n tn You should have an evaluation of your cardivascular system to rule out any serious heart problem. There are treatment options available and timely therapy that sometimes can reverse a condition, stop progression, etc. Thanks for sharing, and if you have any further questions or comments you welcome to respond.

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.
Avatar m tn It all depends on the timing of the revascularisation. When having a heart attack, the blood supply is cut off from a section of heart muscle. This muscle starts to die in a matter of minutes. Depending how soon treatment is received, determines how much muscle dies. Once it dies, the muscle never regenerates or recovers. Some of the heart muscle could have been in a state of damage, before death, and this usually recovers over a couple of months.

17567 tn?1276202029 So, awhile back I started getting left arm pain, which is generally a wake up sound for a heart attack? Rather than ignore it and hope it goes away I actually did something about it... and went to a cardiologist. After a few tests he tells me my heart is fine but by cholesterol is very high (260) and puts me on lipitor. Cardiologists are very big on driving blood pressure and cholesterol down towards zero needless to say.

967168 tn?1477584489 maybe maybe not? I know how quirky EKG/ECG machines are so I'm really hoping this time it's a false reading. My Primary found a new murmur and I've been so sick for about 5-6 months; not feeling right, more winded than normal, major headaches, different types of chest pain than before and ALOT more fainting spells even with my ICD.
Avatar m tn I thought I had a mild heart attack after bending down to get kitty toys off floor. First felt nausea, pain in jaw. Heart thomping so bad that I had to lay down and not move. I also took aspirin.

Avatar f tn I am 57 years I do not smoke and I do not drink or take illegal drugs. In my family there is the history of a heart attack, stroke, breast cancer, cerebal cancer. I do not have cholesterol. Only thing that I do have is mingrane headaches. A few days ago I went to the emergency room because I was not feeling well, the same symptoms that I am experiencing now I had when I went to the er. Right now I am experiencing a headache, it is not a mingrane headache. It is more annoying than anything else.
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 med, in other words, when your anxiety is creeping up, or during a panic attack. Sometimes the timing of when you decide to take the Xanax when needed is crucial. If you FEEL the anxiety worsening, that's the best time. If you wait til you're in full blown panic mode, it is a much bigger challenge to control. It's difficult to judge timing, but you'll get more accustomed to it.
Avatar n tn 8. These back to normal @ 24 hr. I realize I still had a heart attack regardless and I am pursing all that entails, taking meds, changing lifestyle & eating habits and starting cardiac rehab. Please see my comment post following for my questions, sorry just couldn't get it all in!
Avatar n tn another panic attack ,mis afternoon.
1481758 tn?1287638643 Every heart attack is different, so I believe. But it could be just different descriptions from people about the same symptom for all I know. Numb hands & feet, cold tingle, not sure about upset stomach, shacking, all don't sound like a heart attack and in fact the tight chest is the only one that is. I'd assume they drew blood which is probably where they got the ammonia idea.
