Chest pain while inhaling and stabbing pain in heart and left arm

Chest pain while inhaling and stabbing pain in heart and left arm, do i have Angina? I get chest pain when i inhale, this mostly happens in hot summer days, even when im just sitting around. I also get stabbing pain my heart and it shoots down my left arm all the way to my elbow or fingertips. 1 or 2 years ago i had the same pain and irregular heart beating, i went to the hospital and was told my heart muscle probably had a spasm... Are these signs of Angina?

No but the morons at the hospital forgot to tell you to take potassium, magnesium and calcium chelate so that it doesnt happen again. Iron deficency test: Go to the mirror and pull your lower eyelid and see if the color is red or flesh color. If its flesh colored you are lacking enough iron and should take a herbal iron like Floradix. It will take a month to see a difference. Iron carrys oxygen in your blood and if you dont have it you will feel tired, cold hands and feet, headaches, RLS, dull brittle hair, brittle nails, poor sleep, pale skin (see thru), shortness of breath, fatigue, poor concentration, low mood, ringing in the ears, cracks in the corner of the mouth, dizziness, fainting, sore tongue and canker sores oh and pale mucous membranes in lower eyelid.

My husband has been experiencing stabbing pains in his chest for over 6 months now. He said the pain radiates around to the left side and back. He has had extensive tests for heart and it s not heart related. He is being treated for anxiety and is currently on medication for that. He hasn t had any anxiety attacks lately, but the chest pain hits him out of the blue? Any answers you can give me would help.

Yes, I have chest pain on my left side. It is a stabbing pain. It s been going on for about two months. Also I been having heart flutters for two years. About two months ago I was drinking and threw up and then that morning I had a jaw pain that felt like it was in the nerves of my back teeth in my lower jaw.

My husband have a server heart attack and two light ones. The main Artery to the front part of his heart is 100 blocked. Said surgery wouldn't help him because the heart muscle was dead . So he only has 25 percent working. He has no energy hard time breathing. Dr said he needed a difiberlatir but heart was to weak and heart rate was to fast to try to put on in at this time. I'm really worried about him. The dr said he was a walking time bomb. What do I need to look for and how can I help him? Can a person live a long life in this shap

Hi Dr Jain Recently I spoke to a friend who had been a fitness fanatic, doing strenuous activity including hill walking, regularly until he was 80. Not long ago, his doctor diagnosed a hardening of the heart muscles, enlarging the heart overall, and causing a shortness of breath and lethargy. It seems to a non expert such as I that the symtoms are similar to arterial sclerosis around the heart, perhaps because the effects are similar, ie a reduced efficiency in the heart s operation. My question is: If the heart is a muscle, and can be grown and strengthened by exercise, can it be reduced in size again, by atrophy, perhaps reducing the heart to an appropriate size and regaining its flexibility and fuller function if the exercise level is reduced? If it is possible, how do you suggest one goes about it. My friend has been prescribed an increased dose of anti- high blood pressure pills, which he says make him very sleepy, which he does not like. He is not the kind of guy to stop taking the pills (or do anything else) without proper medical supervision, so please feel free to suggest anything appropriate. In my own inexpert view, I understand that the reduced function of the heart reduces oxygen flow between the lungs and other organs, through the blood, causing the lethargy etc. My simplistic mind wonders if breathing in extra oxygen might have some beneficial effect, but I recognise my limited expertise here and am expecting your greater knowledge to be able to explain why this would not work! Thank you. Mike Windsor
