heart

Avatar m tn I smoke weed maybe once every few weeks. I've never really had any problems with it - it just relaxes me and I lose the 'high' after a few hours. However last night a friend rolled a blunt containing skunk - renowned for its high potency - and we went on to share (between about 5 of us) three large blunts. That was all fine and dandy, and I went home feeling normal (I thought I had shrugged off the high by the time I walked into my door).
Avatar f tn It depends on what you mean by a "nervous feeling" in your chest. If it feels like your heart is fluttering, irregular, or skipping beats, then it could be related to your heart, though not in a way that is concerning for a heart attack, like your dad had. First of all, you're dad having a heart attack only increases your risk of having heart disease if he was less than 50 years old when he had heart disease.
429700 tn?1308007823 ve had variations of that pain, that my PCP originally diagnosed as esophageal spasm. At first I was afraid I was having a heart attack, as my hubby had just been in the hospital for a stent at age 35! It took them a while to figure that one out, because he's way too young for that sort of thing. So we decided that it was esophageal spasm, brought on by acid reflux. Later, after I was diagnosed, I figured it was a variant of the MS Hug.
Avatar f tn Yes. That sounds like a panic attack. I've had panic attacks before pregnancy. They usually subside in 10 minutes or so. Take deep breaths. Try to hold on to something tightly then release. Repeat that until you calm down. Anxiety/panic is tough but you're tougher!
1348686 tn?1310654243 O.K. so I was sitting on the floor packing for vacation and all of a sudden out of nowhere I got this really bad dizzy spell and I felt as if I couldn't breath. Could it have just been a panic attack? I have never had one come on like that before. I wasn't really doing anything to make me anxious. Then of course I thought it was my heart because I do have a murmur. Back in May I had an echocardiogram and an ekg of my heart which all came back normal.
Avatar f tn ve been reading about how the symptoms of a heart attack are different for women than they are for men. Could I be having the beginning symptoms of a heart attack?
Avatar n tn Im 14 and I think I may be having a heart attack. I have a hereditary problem with my breast bone being extremely concave and had to be tested for heart attacks when I was younger. My chest has never bothered me until a week ago. The pain is so bad that I have to lay down and wait for it to go away. These pains are throbbing and heavy pressure, and can last up to 15 minutes. I have been short of breath and dizzy, laying down doesn't really help.
Avatar f tn All my life I have had really really bad anxiety but lately its gotten worse. A little bit ago I was doing the dishes and I breathed deep and I felt my chest go thump, it scared the life out of me. I feel like I am having a heart attack, but I don't know if it is a heart attack. I have shortness of breath, I am scared, I'm shaky, I feel like my breath is catching on everything so I can't tell if I have palpitations.
Avatar f tn trying take deep breaths the pain become worse and i vomited twice,it lastes about 5 minutes...could this be a heart attack like my cardiologist said that could happen?i know that this may be a silly question but i think it was...
Avatar f tn Hello, again. I know I've been posting a lot today but I'm feeling terrible. It's 1:41 a.m in California and I can't sleep. I suddenly started feeling my chest numb, just on my left side though as well as my arm. I feel short of breathe as well. I went to the ER a few days ago, got and EKG and it came back normal. I went two days ago, again, got blood work done and it came back normal.
Avatar f tn I know! I just put together the crib, and was putting together the pack and play to see how to assemble it and then I see THAT in my panties.
1933354 tn?1323362834 Well I had a panic attack during a stress test. Right before I got in the treadmill, I was only standing, and my pulse had already reached 180. They nurse was shocked, but she looked at the EKG and was like "Look's good though". So I don't know. I wasn't able to check it at the time of the attack, alll I know is it felt insanely fast. I guess that's the panic though. Could be decieving how fast it really is.
Avatar f tn I absolutely agree with adelle. When these situations arise, you have to remind yourself of the FACTS rather than focusing on the fears. The FACT is, you know exactly what you did, and even knew what you did when you did it. It's not a mystery. The other fact is, a heart attack in a 15 year old is about impossible, not unless there is some kind of serious preexisting heart problem.
6512881 tn?1381971931 But for me I have two diff kind. Usually i have heart palpitations and very bad shortness of breath like all the air out my body is leaving . But the one I had Sunday was diff I started feeling dizzy weak breaking out in worm sweats behind my head and racing heart. I was so scared. Ever since then I haven't been feeling well. Today was a bad day for me. I woke up feeling short of breath then soon as that went away I got a text saying my aunt died.
Avatar f tn t have a lot of PVCs in a row like three to five they actually hurt when they happen in a row not like when I have the single ones and they feel like a butterfly kind of In the stomach but like my heart is stopping kind of pain fully. The only reason I know the difference is from the halter I'mweawearing. It almost feels like bad upper stomach spasm. I'm just wondering if these are dangerous. It happened when I sat down kind of fast?
450439 tn?1249233238 Oh yes I know what you're feeling and I have them every moment of every day and night...grrr been this way for 6 mth - a year straight that I can remember. yes frustration at what the heck is wrong can probably make it worse, as for me I'm too tired to worry much these days. I can't sleep due to mine and when a really bad run hits, it feels like I am having a heart attack and will wake me up if I am sleeping.
Avatar n tn You should see your doctor and have an EKG done to make sure that you did not have a heart attack. Any chest pain or dizziness that lasts over 30 minutes could be a heart attack. You need to find out if you had one and how much, if any damage, to the heart muscle was done. It was good that you took the aspirin. Aspirin can save a person from heart muscle damage.
358304 tn?1409709492 Thanks. Now I'm going to be picturing a pink elephant.. lol At least you can goto bed at night relaxed. I sure as hell can't because my mind is going all the time. I've been training myself to rethink/refocus those thoughts at night but there have been many times I basically yell at myself inside my head to SHUT UP and GO TO SLEEP. I try to focus on a candle flame and calm everything out of my head. I chose a candle flame because I always found them soothing.
1348086 tn?1370783185 I know it has to do with some electrical firing off stuff, but when I have a panic attack like I just went through, many times (like this one), my heart beats like 100-120 a minute and "skips" like 15-20 in some minutes. When it does it 3 or 4 times in a row, I feel faint.
Avatar m tn I'm not a doctor, but I understand people can be having a heart attack and still have a normal or near normal blood pressure. Heart attacks in women don't always include the same/typical symptoms as they do in men. Also, it's fairly common in women that symptoms of a heart attack come and go--so just because the clear up doesn't mean you're not having a heart attack. Better safe than sorry, right? I would seek medical attention immediately. First, take a 325 mg.
Avatar f tn Well it started a month ago I got panick attack, it went away but then also came lightheadness and derealization...the light-headed disappeared last week but the derealization is not actually gone but I think it's fading. Okay so what bothers me lately is I can see and feel my heart in my chest and when I place my hand on my chest I feel like my heart is in my hand(well im thin) and I've been too alert lately. Please help I don't know what's wrong.
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 f tn I am a 44 year old female who had cancer when I was younger. At that time- after multiple surgeries, I got addicted to painkillers and now, it has been an issue for 22 years. I want to stop more than anything but maybe what I'm about to tell you, will change your perspective. Recently, my Dr. called and told me that I have had a heart attack that wasn't treated.
Avatar m tn I started to feel a little less panicky and when I got off the bowl like 5 to 10 mins my heart started to race fast and my throat felt dry and I was getting scared and started to panic, but the worse thing is that choking feel like I'm gonna die from not breathing. I panicked want down down stairs to get a ice cup of water it helped a little but to be of he safe side I got that brown paper bag that everyone keep talking about and was breathing into it which helped a little more .
Avatar n tn what could stop just stop the heart from beating, you faint ang pass out why would the heart just stop
Avatar f tn Hello. I am here trying to find some answers. For several years I have been going through these dizzy spells along with other symptoms. Lately it seems to be getting worse. I was on birth control for years and I thought the pills were causing all these side effects. I have been off them for about 4 months and I am still getting the dizzy spells like before so I am lost. I can be having a good day and out of nowhere It hits me.
182884 tn?1259312906 Allso I know from foot surgeries and other parts of the body, that scar tissue forms and in my case it forms excessive scar tissue. If you have a heart attack, does the dead or injured part form scar tissue like in other parts of the body? If so, can you remove it, or what function does it play if it is just scar tissue. Also what is meant by viable tissue and that hoping the area is still viable or alive?
Avatar n tn Can you give us a little more to go on? Do you have a history of chest paiin or reason to think you had a heart attack?
Avatar m tn You need to get a doctors opinion.My dad had the same problem and they said he was on the verge of a heart attack brought on by extreme stress.If you're nervous about something or you've been working more than usual try to calm down and reduce whatever it is.
