Can I have a Heart attack ?

ok. well to start thinks off i am a 17 year old male i am about 6 1 and i weigh about 180lbs. recently i have been having like a burning sensation in my chest its not bad but it goes away and comes back. i have high anxiety and i stress all the time about everything. i went to the doctor about 4 days ago and they took blood and everything come back normal and he listened to my heart and didn t say anything about it being bad, he said i was a healthy guy. nothing bad runs in my family except high blood pressure but mine is normal. could this be heartburn? stress related? and if something was wrong wouldn t the doctor have said something??? thanks

A heart attack can happen at any age though it is very rare in the young. Your symptoms look like they're caused by acid reflux or heartburn. No huhus, you're fine.

Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

I am a 33 yr old female and I swear I have heart issues. I have had so many test done for my heart and everything has come back 100% normal. i have had countless number of EKG s I have a 48 heart montior I had a echo of my heart. my bp is a little high (bottom number in the low 80 s) my cholesterol total is 166. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and my Dr (bless his heart he is awesome) says all the things I feel is related to my panic not heart. Is there really anything else they could do to test my heart or did I pretty get everything? My doc said he wouldn t send me for a cardic cath cuz everything else was fine. Yes I do take meds to my panic attacks.

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

i m a clinical social worker. 14 year old client has micradenoma on or near pituitary gland. Some hormone levels were elevated but she was examined by neurologist and no surgery necessary they say. Has all kinds of symptoms -- racing thoughts, visual hallucinations at times, out of control anxiety, rage outbursts, trouble reasoning and little access to insight, preoccupied about her body and somatic complaints, defiance. However she doesn t really seem bipolar or schizophrenic, though she was Dx d bipolar. I don t think it looks psychiatric, it seems so odd and doesn t add up to any one Dx. Neurologists told parents the tumor had nothing to do wiht any of this, what do you think??
