Jaw pain heart disease

Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain heart disease


Avatar n tn Discomforts vary from person to person for some reason, maybe it is to do with where the blockage is, which artery. The symptoms can be back pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, throat pain, jaw pain, chest pain. You may or may not experience shortness of breath, you may or may not sweat a lot. Some people notice an increase in heart rate, some may notice a drop in blood pressure, and some may feel nauseous or even light headed. A huge variety of possible symptoms.
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 n tn Question #1:If angina presents as jaw pain with no chest pain, what, typically, is the nature of the pain? Diffuse? One-sided? Squeezing? Including the neck too? I have a mild discomfort only in one particular quarter size area of my jaw, just to the left of my chin that comes and goes. It can last a few minutes or a couple hours. Exertion does seem to bring it on, but I also sometimes have it at rest with a heart rate about 75.
1769997 tn?1313945448 I am a 53 yo male who has heart disease. I have over 40 stents as well as 2 bypass surguries. I have since developed tremendous chest pain that radiates down my left arm and up to my jaw. It comes out of nowhere and is sometimes a 10 out of 10. Nitro does nothing when it is ramped up so high. I have been in the ER 12 of the last 30 days and it is not only embarrasing but it *****. I have been told each time the ECG is good and the traponin levels are good as well as chest x rays are all good.
Avatar n tn is it possible to be having a problem with your heart even if you have gotten your blood pressure down to normal? my chest feels tight, some occasional pain, and some in jaw, however, my blood pressure right now is normal.
Avatar f tn I have had a pain in my left shoulder/shoulder blade, left arm aches, and fingers tingle once in a while. No jaw pain. I do get a sharp pain in my chest that comes and goes. The last couple of weeks I have been waking up in a cold sweat, a puddle of sweat. I am soaked. Once in a while when I bend over and stand back up I get lightheaded and dizzy. My energy level is low, tired a lot. Could I possibly have a clogged artery?
Avatar f tn As long as you are not experiencing any of the typical symptoms of heart issues like shortness of breath, pain in the arm or shoulder or jaw, nausea, sweating, etc. i would definately consider process of elimination and possibly speak with your family doc to make sure that none of this he/she believes could be heart related. Sounds like when you re position your body you are getting relief which comes back to your muscle groups.
Avatar n tn I am a 43 yr old female with chest pain that comes and goes.It will even go up to my jaw and around my back. On a scale of 1-10, it is about a 6 or 7. It has gotten a little worse over the past few days. I had a stress echo done a couple of months ago. The echo was fine but there was a little change on my EKG. I believe it said EKG showed some ST Depression while I complained of chest pain. Dr. sent my to have a nuclear PET scan and I guess those results came back fine.
Avatar f tn it could be something not as sinister, in a heart attack there is chest pain, lower jaw pain, dizziness, pain radiating down the armmainly left side, sometimes with heart disease there is a mucasey cough that lasts for months, are you healthy? have you checked your cholesterol? and bp?
Avatar m tn It's not possible to determine the precise cause of your chest discomfort over the internet. However, the pain associated with coronary artery disease or angina is typically described as a crushing or pressure , is worse with exertion, and is relieved by rest. Heart related chest pain may radiate to your jaw or left arm, and many be associated with nausea, sweatiness, or shortness of breath. It is possible that heart related chest pain may not have any of these typical features.
Avatar n tn For about 4 days now i have had severe jaw pain, i seriously cant open my mouth without wanting to cry, brushing my teeth and eating have been a hard task. also it hurts just on the left side and just starting for 2 days its been affecting my ear. i recently have discovered jaw pain is a sign of heart disease. im not even sure if its true. im 20 years old and i have been diagnosed with tachycardia, hypertension, and high cholesterol. also i will add im 95 pounds.
Avatar f tn At the time of the EKG, I didn't have that episode I had a couple days ago (sweating, pressure in chest, and trouble breathing) Is that why the EKG came back normal because at the time I didn't have these symptoms; just chest and jaw pain. I still have chest and jaw pain now. I feel lightheaded sometimes also. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn My main concern is jaw pain. After short periods of running I am experiencing pain, specifically around my joints. After doing some light background research I saw this this could be linked to heart disease. Before anyone responds a few points should be made. -I was tested extensively for heart issues when I was 4 due to a benign heart murmur. - I have scoliosis which causes one of my legs to be approx .25 inches shorter than the other. I require the use of a lift in one shoe.
Avatar n tn It was like a scarf tightened around my neck and lower jaw. I am not grinding my teeth or clenching my jaw. The pain went away when I stopped walking and went inside. This happens also when fast walking on an indoor track where I work out. When I tried jogging I felt as though my head would explode. I must let you know this does not happen when I do weight training. Last Feb. cardiologist did tests such as angiogram and I passed.
Avatar m tn A few minutes after starting up, I'd notice pain in my jaw. If I kept going, sometimes the pain would subside eventually (perhaps after I found my pace?). I went to a cardiologist who was at first unconcerned. He did an EKG and my blood pressure was fine. I then went for a stress test and an echocardiogram. I think the echo was fine but the stress test was "positive." He then recommended a nuclear stress test, which also came up positive.
1166205 tn?1263080452 Often times when PR is misdiagnosed the patient may have Rheumatoid arthritis or Lupus SLE. Especially with Lupus TMJ and jaw pain are definitely involved. Do get the the pains when you breathe checked out as that could be a result of lung or heart involvement.
Avatar n tn yesterday i had my 6th cardiac cath with no new findings although the monday before i had problems with a stress test that included nasuea, shortness of breath rise in blood pressure and jaw arm and neck pain. i also had two doses of nitroglycern before i stablized. my cardiologist said he can't explain what happened but there was no significant change in my heart and vessels since the last cath.

Avatar n tn I've been having chest pains for 15 years now, aggravated in the last few months, can barely go to work. I am 37 years old female, with slightly increased LDL, not overweight. I feel all kind of chest pains - squeezing, dull, sharp, going into left arm and in my jaw. I've seen a cardiologist who did a stress test and said it is 'very unlikely' that I have heart problems. However, I keep having these chest pains that are released by Nitro spray.
Avatar f tn My arms hurt and my jaw sometimes feels tight. To top it off, I've had random muscle pain since I was 14 and GERD for just as long. I've been having panic attacks to the tune of about 1-3 a day for months. Zoloft isn't working and I just found out I'm pregnant again, so I can't take klonopin. Thank goodness that my husband is amazingly supportive. My question is, does anybody else have panic attacks that you are SURE are heart attacks?
Avatar n tn If it's heart ischemia and brought on by eating, it would also be brought on by exercise at that stage, even walking up a slight incline. Stress can obviously affect the digestive system dramatically, so I would get a Doctor to check you out.
Avatar m tn 6 months ago I had trouble chest pain that I felt move into my jaw. I was working and not stressed. It was so bad it scared me but went away in about 15 min. Then in the middle of the night it woke me up same symptom . Very painful . Went to the hospital they found nothing wrong. Didn't have this happen again until about 6 months later.this time I had several attacks. .Went to the hospital . Showed I had a small change in my EEG . They kept me overnight and I had a stress test.
Avatar f tn I am experiencing jaw pain(left) and pain under fingernail. I also have some muscle pain in left upper arm and forarm these symptoms occur at the same time.. I have had fibromyalgia for many years, but this is a new sympton and the pain is different. I have found that once you are diagnosed with fibro. I feel that everything or pain that you experience is blamed on it.
Avatar n tn If you have the complete workup and everything turns out fine with your heart - you may want to check out costochondritis - I had recurring chest pain that mimicked heart pain and even ibuprofen didnt do much - its an inflamation of the lining in your chest wall - usually, once people get it - it can recur for the rest of your life - I have it on and off all the time - usually after Ive done something like lifting or wallpapering - but sometimes it will come on for no appearant reason.
Avatar m tn about a month ago i had what i think was a heart attack. i had throbbing pain in the left side of my chest, i was short of breath, my left arm went numb, and i started sweating on my forehead. it lasted about 6 seconds. since then i have seen 3 doctors, paramedics, and been to the ER. i have had THREE ekg tests, a blood test, an x ray, i've had my heart listened to, and had my bp checked more times than i can count. the only abnomality i've had is a benign arythmia.
Avatar n tn he doens't get chest pain. It's arm pain and jaw pain, without any chest pain. Can these pains be heart related without any chest pain? Thank you and sorry for a sort of duplicate post. - Jenny S.
3134753 tn?1342635817 I had a couple of events within a few days that I had not put together as being heart related. First I woke up with back pain. I took some ibruprofen and laid down on the hard floor with my feet propped up and it went away. Then I had some pain in my shoulders down the front of my chest, like where backpack straps lay, along with pain in the back of my arms a few days later. I was wearing a backpack and thought that was the problem.
