I have all kinds of heart attack symptoms and hope it''s not one

A: Hello katgoul9,   Thank you for describing your symptoms with detail; it certainly helps with our discussion.   While it is impossible for me to say for certain the cause of your symptoms, I think your physician who can examine you, knows your history, can order lab tests can best comment on the cause of your symptoms.   That being said, given your symptoms, their lack of relationship to exercise, and your age do seem to indicate that your chest pain is not likely cardiac in nature.   Concerning symptoms for cardiac causes of chest pain included left-sided pain that is described as pressure or tightness.  Also, pain radiating to the jaw or arm, nausea or vomiting, shortness of breath and sweating are signs that your heart...

BBB Chest Pains - Not heart attack Symptoms

A: Stress? @Butrflynet, Actually, those can be symptoms of a heart attack, particularly in a female, but the tests done in the ER may not immediately reveal the problem. Several years ago, my mother had the same sort of symptoms, but the ER tests did not suggest or confirm a heart attack. She was quite sure it was a heart attack, however, and she was admitted to the hospital as a precaution. Two or three days after admission, blood work confirmed an elevation in cardiac enzymes which indicated some damage to her heart muscle, indicative of a slight heart


What are symptoms for women having heart attack?

Life has got to be worth more.....Infact I know it is. Discover how women''s symptoms of heart attack can differ from those of men. Risk Factors Learn which risk factors are...


Is this a heart attack or.....?

A: in my professional opinion i would say no. generally chest pain even with pain that radiates to other places that gets worse upon inspiration isnt cadiac related. the theory of it being from lifting your little girl i would say is right on the money. just a few stressed muscles that act up every once and a while. a real heart attacks symptoms include crushing or heavy chest pain accompanied by shortness of breath, pale, cool and clammy skin. profuse sweating. you pry just use those muscles a little more then what they like. after awhile they will get used to it and you wont get sore anymore. If you are female, the arm pain does not apply to you when having a heart


Is it possible for a 22 yr old female to have a "false alarm" heart attack?

A: She might have been having a panic attack. My husband gets those bad. If she hadn''t gone to the hospital, I would say that it is possible, but highly unlikely. However, the fact that she went to the hospital and was released with a diagnosis of anxiety indicates that there is no way she was suffering from symptoms of cardiac etiology. When a patient experiences chest pain prior to a heart attack, it is because the heart muscle is not getting enough oxygen. When this happens, certain proteins are released into the bloodstream. If a patient presents to the ER with chest pain, blood will be drawn and sent to a lab for evaluation. If no specific proteins are found in the blood, then the pain is...


I think I had a heart attack. halp. =(?

A: That wasn''t a heartattack! Unless you are morbidly obese (over 300 pounds), it is very very rare for a 21 yearold female to get one. It was probably demon possession that did it. The incubi sex demons have been getting stronger since the leash that God has placed on Lucifer is weakening (end times). I will pray for you. You need to see your doctor about your symptoms. Call them immediately and see what they recommend... they may want you to go to the emergency room for an ekg and some monitoring. Your collegue should not have reacted that way. Sure you''re only 21, but I know for a fact if somebody looked at me and said "I think I''m having a heart attack"...

After menopause, females will be having the same incidence of heart attack as that of males. Use of contraceptive pill may cause heart attack. As regards diabetic patients, the heart attack is silent. They know the previous episode of heart attack only when the cardiologist intimates about the same. Women often don''t get the big symptoms, like severe chest pain, and pain or...


heart attack ?

A: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI or MI), commonly known as a heart attack, is a disease state that occurs when the blood supply to a part of the heart is interrupted. The resulting ischemia or oxygen shortage causes damage and potential death of heart tissue. It is a medical emergency, and the leading cause of death for both men and women all over the world.[1] Important risk factors are a previous history of vascular disease such as atherosclerotic coronary heart disease and/or angina, a previous heart attack or stroke, any previous episodes of abnormal heart rhythms or syncope, older age-...

The probable cause is rhumatic fever. If rhumatic fever is not properly treated, heart valves will be damaged. She will have symptoms of heart disease.
