Jaw pain heart attack early signs

Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain heart attack early signs


Avatar f tn The only reason why I am concerned is because I have both chest and jaw pain and those are heart attack symptoms. I also have pain in both my arms. A couple days agobefore I went to the doctors I had sweating, pressure in chest, and trouble breathing Is that why the EKG came back normal because those symptoms were gone at the time?
Avatar f tn Any chest pain should be checked out, but pain that is chronic in nature is rarely related to your heart. The exception would be if the pain comes on with exertion, then it could be. As I said, get it checked out.
Avatar f tn For the past 6 weeks I have been experiencing left arm pain, jaw discomfort, jaw pain (where the top and bottom meet), back pain, dizziness, chest pressure (only when sitting down). As I am here sitting here typing this I have the chest pressure, back pain and jaw discomfort. I know, all classic symptoms of heart attack.
Avatar f tn There are many conditions that might cause chest pain that are heart related even if it's not an heart attack......again if its not normal for you get it checked out. I hope this helps!Keep us posted.
Avatar f tn This doesn't sound particularly like heart attack. And yes, sore muscles and all the other symptoms you describe can be caused by anxiety, especially if the anxiety is extreme and lasts for an entire day or longer. I think it's worth going to a doctor, for two reasons. One is just to make sure your heart is OK. Another is, if you get anxiety attacks like this often, it may be worth to start treating them. In the future, though, if you suspect having a heart attack, don't wait for 5 days.

I've gone 2 ER several times in d past year thnkn I'm havn a heart attack n thy do EKG n evrythn seems 2 b ok. Is this really my anxiety? Or should I get chkd AGAIN?
15125243 tn?1438784169 Approximately three years ago, I had to find a new Family Physician because my other family doctor was retiring. I had been going to him for over 10 years on an annual basis. It was early May 2012, I had my annual medical checkup appointment.When It was my turn, I went into my Doctor's office and I no sooner sat down getting ready to have that dreaded prostate exam when my physician and friend, announced that "he would be retiring at the end of June 2012.
Avatar f tn after 2 months of acute tonsillitis and antibiotic treatments I am still the same. Feels like something is in my throat every time I swallow, terrible jaw pain, unusual pain, sensation in tongue ear ache...all on the left side! Unbelievable! Have another physical Dr. Appointment on September 12..... Will update then....how is your feeling now?
Avatar n tn This pain is usually of the pain/numbness kind. People have told me that the pain from a heart attack is very severe. I would say that this pain is not at that level. In the last week or so, I have noticed a little shortness of breath, fatigue and I feel flush in the face. I started taking Pamelor for depression about 1 ½ weeks ago. I have noticed that my heart rate has increased from 65 bpm to about 80 since I have been on it. I am wondering if any of my symptoms may be due to the medication.
Avatar n tn Pain that moves about is not heart pain. Yours moves around. Neck and shoulder pain accompany anxiety and tension. Boy, do they ever. You're diagnosing yourself with Prinzmetal's angina?? And wanting calcium channel blockers? Oh, dear. You've been reading the Merck. Don't do that. By the way, your aspirin regime could worsen your gastric symptoms. Unless you have been TOLD you are at risk for vessel blockage, I'd lose the aspirin pronto.
Avatar n tn Mom (fifty six years old) has heart disease and had a heart attack years ago (I was there and remember), 2. other grandmother on mom side in her early sixties has heart disease and had a heart attack, (my cousin was there), she takes something she said sounded like nitroglicen 3. Grandma (my mom moms) says she recalls heart disease being in the family in her family before us (not her kids) this means somewhere between my great aunts and uncles and great grandparents.
Avatar n tn During the physical they discussed the retinal hemorrhage and the doctor decided to run an ECG which was abnormal (I'm not exactly sure what abnormality was noted) and the doctor said it could be from a possible mild heart attack at one time. He sent my husband to a nearby hospital to have an echocardiogram performed just to check everything. The echo was normal and no further tests were performed to double check the original abnormality.
Avatar m tn 3) Does angina mean you are likely to have a heart attack? Not necessarily. A heart attack is caused by lack of blood flow to the heart wall muscle. It takes 20+ years of eating junk food to build up enough plague in the arteries to block them and cause a heart attack.
Avatar f tn and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar f tn I can recall that when I resumed my regular exercise of walking my dog following this heart attack, (no stent insertion), I did encounter aching in the jaw, under the tongue and in my cheeks. I had a 2nd heart attack in Nov 09, which involved a stent being inserted.
Avatar n tn If you have stomach pain you can have symptoms that feel heart attack related. I had a severe allergic reaction to Cymbalta that put me in the ER 3 times in a short time span and I haven't fully recovered since then. I also believe that my carotid is inflamed. I'm going to get a hidascan next week to check my stomach and gallbladder and if they see any correlation I will let you know.
182884 tn?1259316506 The only difference is that the initial one was about 5 times more severe and included the jaw pain and more severe squeezing pain or pressure in my chest. All of the other attacks have been either at rest, middle of the night or in the home. They allso came in clusters, and now I havent' had one for 3 weeks. What makes them come and go, what causes the vasospasms, as I still have vasospasms of the fingers , toes etc.
Avatar n tn pain radiating down left arm, up into jaw and cheeks; pain in left shoulder; pain sometimes radiating to right arm. For the past week, I have been awakened in early morning by horrible chest pressure which leaves me gasping for breath. It literally feels as if someone is deliberatly stepping on my diaphram and chest preventing me from breathing. Walking up a slight incline leaves my chest so tight and my breath so shallow that I have to stop and rest before I can continue.

Avatar n tn I think some of my symptoms were caused by the antiobiotic which triggered a severe anxiety attack. Anyway, I am still in pain today with pain in my back near the right shoulder blade. Still the pain/pressure under my ribs. I'm wondering if I have a pinched nerve in my upper back which is causing all of this, since this area gives me more pain every day. I also notice much of the pain disappears after I sleep, or lay down and relax. Anyway, I'm going to see my GP in two days.
Avatar f tn Do you see a pattern when you get the pain? Do you have family history of heart disease? From my personal experience I had nuclear stress tests which didn’t show abnormalities and I experienced pain. I was told it was all related to anxiety but I actually had some pretty advanced blockages. Please don’t get nervous from this response, as I also had every “risk factor” in the book.
Avatar n tn Rubbing the place where it hurts really doesn’t do much to help. I’ve had only one attack but I began to have chronic low level pain during the day. Let me jump to a side story: For a yr or more my wife often couldn't sleep through the night due to pain in her back (not legs). (we’ve invested in ever more expensive bedding to no avail) A month ago an internet search found a suggestion of “Evening Primrose Oil” (no I don’t own stock). It was cheap, low risk, and natural so I got her some.
Avatar n tn I believe with all my heart that the Accutane is the cause of my problems. I have debilitating pain every day. I have been checked for rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Both were negative. I saw a Rheumatologist, and he remembers this being a problem in the past.
Avatar n tn If you've been checked by the doctor and your heart is structurally sound (no damage from a heart attack or damaged valves), then you can relax. It's just a little electrical blip in there. The heart sends a small electrical signal from the upper part of the heart to the lower part. Sometimes that signal is off by a millisecond. Doesn't sound like much but yes, you might feel the difference. But it isn't dangerous. No more dangerous than a hiccup or a twitching eyelid.
Avatar n tn I too am having problems with ear pain, stiff neck, jaw pain, sinus pain and it all started with a fever and flu like symptoms. I am scheduled for a root canal on Thursday. I will let you know if it has all been related to my teeth. My dentist told me that the root of this tooth is very close to my sinuses. I felt like I had a sinus infection and an ear infection. The fever was two days after I had a crown put in.
Avatar f tn It often causes referred pain to the upper abdomen when diseased. Heart attack Angina pectoris – pain behind the breastbone in heart or coronary arteries disease Pericarditis, mycocarditis or endocarditis Heart diseases are often considered as medical emergencies as the condition can be life-threatening. It should always be suspected when accompanied by symptoms such as pain to the left jaw or arm with dizziness and/or fainting.
Avatar n tn If you’re in a sensitive state, this can ring alarm bells because you fear a sudden heart attack. The more you panic, the faster the heart beats. It’s therefore understandable why many people in this situation jump to conclusions and call for medical help. What you have to remember is that palpitations are perfectly natural and can often be caused by exhaustion or stimulants like caffeine.
1554262 tn?1374243601 The sharper it got, the tighter my entire jaw got. I ended up on the floor and freaked my husband out... he thought it was a heart attack. The pain was intense, but also kind of felt like a large piece of food was caught in my esophagus- but with sooo much sharp pain. I drank a whole bottle of water and it helped relieve the pain in my chest and my jaw loosened too. However, 5 minutes later it happened again and I repeated with another water bottle.
Avatar n tn We were thinking maybe perforation. They did an EKG and he was having a heart attack. He was given clot buster and sent to a larger hospital where the heart cath showed clean arteries. No one can tell us if the two are related. We feel that they are related because he has never had any problems with the heart or signs and symptoms of heart problems. We do not think of an EGD as a benign procedure anymore.
Avatar n tn The pain meds were probably not for your heart and if I had to guess it was for some type of musculoskeletal pain that your physician thought you had. Set up an appointment with your physician or even his/her nurse to help go over things. Also, work on identifying what caused your panic attack and triggers and coping mechanisms for dealing with it should it recur.
