What Causes Numbness In The Mouth Along With Increased Heartbeat?
She has calmed down now. Panic attack? She claims she had a good day, had showered and was hula-hooping when this attack came on. Still has tightness in her chest.
Needs to be examined and ECG needs to be done to rule out cardiac issue.
Thanks for your query.
Based on the description, it resembles a heart attack closely.
It could very well be a panic attack but heart issue needs to be ruled out before saying it is due to panic.
I urge you to take her to the nearest ER and get an EKG/ECG done and Trop-T and Trop-I tests done.
If both are normal then you can go ahead with treating the panic attack.
I hope this helps.
Please do write back to me if you have any doubts.
Please call 911.
I understand your concern and I request you to call 911 right away.
She needs emergency care.
All the best.
Even if she is calm right now, she does need to get the ECG done.
Please do not delay going to the ER.
Heart attack needs to be ruled out immediately, even though she is calm right now, you should take her to the ER or call 911.
I hope you understand the urgency of the matter.
Wishing your daughter good health.
