Jaw pain heart attack sign

Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain heart attack sign


Avatar m tn Most of the time if you are having any type of shoulder pain that radiates down your arm our up into your jaw, it could be a precursor/sign of an impending heart attack. Hope he continues to do well.
Avatar n tn Jaw pain could be a sign of Angina. If this is happening if he is sitting down and relaxed then I would take him to the hospital for a troponin test. Now the problem is, if his troponin was raised a week ago before the stent, then it will likely be raised still today, but should be lower. They should have the records. IF this is indeed angina, then it should get worse with exertion.
1814992 tn?1316894451 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 A few moments later, the area around my left carotid started to hurt, and following that a numbness traced up along my the left side of my face and mouth along my jaw. The symptoms are all those of a heart attack, but I'm doubting that the case because they haven't ever gone away nor have they worsened. What exactly is this, and how severe is it? Is it maybe just a pinched nerve aggravated by this morning's spinal manipulation?
Avatar n tn The symptoms you describe are typical for a heart attack in a woman. Woman will normally feel pain n the back rather the chest and mostly radiating to the jaw. The fact that it only lasted 15 mins is a good sign, but given the nature of your pain along with the timing, 4 am to 9 am is the most common time for a heart attack, I would be getting checked out.
Avatar m tn Chest pain Arm pain Back pain in the center/upper left shoulder blade Pain in the jaw-line Fullness in the chest (almost like a short period of asthma) I also notice that sometimes I get very hot, to the point that I am sweating... all while in a very air-conditioned apartment with 2 fans on me. Sometimes I start to get dizzy, as if the room spins for a split second. I have also gotten a "lump in the throat" sort of feeling.
994817 tn?1249741878 There is only one exception that I know of where a young person can have a TRUE heart attack; my own daughter had her first heart attack at the age of 12. The first thing you need to understand is that a heart attack is caused ONLY by a lack of blood flow through the Coronary Arteries which are located on the outside of the heart muscle.
Avatar f tn To be safe I would have it checked then if it turns out to be a pinched nerve at least you can go ahead and have it treated with the peace of mind that your heart is fine.
Avatar f tn With the meds and diet, my total cholesterol is 98, ldl 40, HDL 49 and tris are 44. I have no chest pain or shortness of breath. My cardiologist told me that my heart attack was "large" one; my EF was 40% and is now 45%. Although not a diabetic, I have to watch my blood sugar. I lost about 30 lbs last year learning how to watch the carbs. All in all, I feel like a pretty lucky guy. It could have been much worse. I have a second chance and am taking full advantage.
Avatar n tn I do NOT want to alarm you, but I think it's best to err on the side of caution. My pre heart attack pain manifested as pain in my triceps as though I had worked out the day before. I did not have chest pains, or breathlessness or pain in the jaw (until very late) We all want to rationalize the pain away, especially after having been through it once before. But rather than speculate, were I in his shoes I would go to the ER since it's the weekend.
428185 tn?1203745389 As you can imagine, these sensations worry me a lot and I'm hoping to hear that my normal blood levels of those factors and the duration of the squeezing-clenching pain mean it's not angina or heart attack. I've read about unstable angina and how it occurs at rest - it's scary reading. I thank you again for taking the time to read and respond. I know how busy doctors are. My urologist even works on Sundays.
428185 tn?1203745389 Do good results from a stress/echo test, EKG and resting echocardiogram preclude angina or heart attack? I passed these tests, so I can't figure out this squeezing pain I get in my chest. First I thought it was heartburn because I have hiatal hernia, but it's not a burning pain at all, and neither Prilosec, Tums nor water helps. I get these maybe 3-4 times a year, but I've had 3 this year already. Last night was bad, it finally went away but it's back again but milder right now.
Avatar m tn today it is aching still, slightly more. still not too bad. anyway, i googled the symptom. it's apparently a warning sign for a heart attack. so pretty scared it's almost 1 am. should i rush out to the ER? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Yes but throat/jaw discomfort is the early warning sign before chest pain, which is why I've always known to relax and let my heart slow down before vasospasm and stable angina. This is what made me feel more toward gastric because the acid obviously starts in the stomach and works its way upward. I had esophagitis last year and I couldn't tell the difference apart from the longer length of pain (15-20 mins instead of 2) and the sequence of discomfort.
503418 tn?1231102336 I can tell you from my experience after having a heart attack...That for me the pain was so severe, and wasn't just on one side...It was more like an elephant standing on my chest, and i couldn't breath..the pain was constant..I would go see your cardiologist just to be sure..good luck ...
Avatar n tn I then began to experience slight jaw pain in the area below the ear. Hurts when I chew. Internist xrayed my jaw to rule out TMJ, and that came back negative. He has no other suggestions. I went for about 1 1/2 weeks until this past Monday, with no feeling of fullness or anything. The slight jaw pain was still present. On Monday, it begun to feel not normal again. I don't necessarily have ear fullness, but the area behind my ears near the jaw feels odd inside.
Avatar f tn I have heart murmur.I have pain on my chest,neck,lower jaw and back of the ribcage area.pain on the chest hurts more when I take a deep breath.Are these a sign of a heart problem?
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 m tn I have been relatively fit and healthy, although since my dad passed away almost 3 years ago my diet and fitness hasnt been the healthiest and I have been smoking since the age of 13. Because I wasnt expecting my severe pain to be a heart attack, I rode it out for 2 days of constant back and neck pain before I phoned a doctor. Because of this I was later to learn that I couldnt have stents because of the delayed medical intervention.
Avatar f tn Heart attack symptoms in women usually differ from men's, even though men's symptoms (like chest pain) are often touted as the most common sign of a heart attack.
Avatar m tn It's more of a pressure than a pain, but sometimes there is short sharp pain lasting a few seconds. My normal resting heart rate is between the mid 60's to lower 80's. I've been on a holter and a 21 day heart monitor when I was very ill, and they didn't find anything besides IST (Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia) and Supraventricular Tachycarida. They said that there is nothing wrong with my heart, and at the time, they said that some people just have a faster heart rate.
Avatar n tn Would my BP go up during angina spells if I had CAD? 3. When they talk about arm and jaw pain, is it shooting, or consant in nature? Mine are shooting 98% of the time. 4. Other than to put my fears to rest, would any cardiolgist Cath me/64 slice ct?
Avatar f tn I have googled my symptoms and apparently for a female everything is a sign of an oncoming heart attack. This is what I believe started my heart anxiety. I have gone to the ER 3 times over this. Never while it is happening. Usually days or a week later. After an episode I get very paranoid that something is wrong with my heart. I am convinced I am going to have a heart attack. I have random aches and pains in my wrists and arms and upper back along with my jaw.
396332 tn?1320007215 I always have found that if I can notice that any chest pain changes with movement then you know your not having a heart attack. With a heart attack the pain will be steady, crushing or constricting and will not change if you move your arms or press on your chest muscles. When you have chest pain from anxiety it is usually from you tensing your chest muscles and will vary as you move around.
Avatar f tn I always hear that jaw pain is a sign of heart attack. Where would the jaw pain be? I have jaw discomfort (not pain) in my upper jaw area (cheek bone area). Is this a sign or is it too high up? What else could this be be signs of?
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 I was actually admitted to the hospital by my cardio, because of the heart attack like symptoms (pain in upper l. back, up neck and down arm). My ekg was abnormal for some reason then too, but the pains really had them concerned. It was all from my C-spine.
Avatar n tn I continued to have these episodes of unexplained anxiety/panic along with chest pain/pressure, shoulder pain rib and back pain (all left sided) pain down arms, and the breathing discomfort, several trips to the ER found nothing. Back to cardiology, echo normal, bloods normal, managed 12 minutes on a treadmill stress test, 2 holter monitors found only ectopic beats all normal.
