If in doubt, call 911 and go immediately to the ER. Better safe than sorry.
A feeling of uneasiness or feeling like you are going to die.
Pain that radiates to the neck or down the arm or into the back.
Mid-sternal pain-in the area usually below the heart.
Shortness of breath.
Indigestion that does not go away mimics it too.
Pain that increases even if you rest. Does not diminish with nitro tabs. Feeling pain or discomfort constantly or intermittently.
For women, the symptoms may be vague. And there may be no pain.
Please. If in doubt, get help. Do not drive yourself. Call for help. You could save your own life or someone else's!
If you have to use nitro more than 3 times spaced 5 minutes apart, you need to be seen by a physician in the Emergency Room. Nitro should stop the pain in, at most, 3 doses. It does not matter if you have been seen a billion times, it takes one episode to die. ONE. Better safe than sorry. If nitro spray is ineffective, you NEED something else. PLEASE.
Excellent! I am glad....
Let me know how you are, please.
A friend of mine did, at the same age I am now (53). She said she'd felt slightly nauseous all morning that day, then one arm and shoulder began to ache and cramp. Her husband didn't like the way she was looking and insisted upon driving her to the hospital. When they arrived, she lost consciousness, and was admitted immediately. She ended up having a bypass that evening. She says her husband being home from work saved her life, because she would've ignored the "discomfort" until it was too late.
If you have to ask go to hospital, hard to breath, pressure in chest sweating mild nausea
Unfortunately, my hubby had a silent heart attack, and it left him with much damage. He was exposed to Agent Orange in Viet Nam as a medic, which is known to cause ischemic heart disease, so EKG test sometimesneeded. It could have happened years before we married. We founf out about two years after we were married. Important for people to get check ups, although I knew a man who got a clear bill of health a couple weeks before he went out jogging and he was found dead after he failed to return home. Women's heart attacks sometimes spasms of the main artery, no other symptom.
I had three heart attacks. My original symptoms were "flu-like".
Sweating, hot flushes, lethargy, disorientation .
If in doubt go for check up.
Shortness of breath was his only symptom.
don't mess around here if you think your having one...call 911
Some signs are subtle and can be different for women.
My Dad....chest pain, breathless,pain going down the arm.
Common symptoms are shortness of breath, a pain in chest, often radiating into and down the left arm. Sweating and weakness along with a feeling of lethargy. The problem is that sometimes none of these symptoms manifest, commonly referred to as a "silent heart attack".
Feeling like you got to pool....and sweating.
The I shouldn't be eating this syndrome.
Uncle did... I think he got a problem with his kidney straight after.
