How to know I have a heart disease ?

I felt pain on my chest along with pain on the back and left arm. It was continious and I sweated too. I went to the doctor and he has suggested me some sleeping pills for reducing my stress. Am I checked on the heart diseases properly ?

hi Tabassum ;
You need to get investigated like do a ECG & also get checked by doctor(Cardiologist) & you will come to know whether you have a heart problem.I guess if you are with in 40 yrs of age there is less chance of a heart problem .

Hi gretings from healthcare magic
Pain on chest, arm and sweating is the cardinal sign of coronary artery disease. If you are hypertensive then it will more conferm. So consult your cardiologist ASAP. thank you

Sir, My Father (age 67) had some chest pains and problems and so he consulted a physician. All the tests were done and he was reffered to a specialist Cardiologist. The Cardiologist checked and asked him to take up the TMT Test. During the TMT test,he was only able to take that for 4 minutes 9 seconds because he experienced very dried up mouth,throat and fatigue. Finally,the Cardiologist examined the reports and confirmed that his ARTERIES are blocked and asked him that it would be good to do a ANGIOGRAPHY. VERY VERY IMPORTANT- The Cardiologist prescribed to take a medication called ECHOSPRIN-75 once daily.But after the first day,there was severe reactions like suffocation,breathing problem,very weakness and loss of balance of his body.So,we immediately stopped the medication. So,i need your help and it would be very good if you could please give your Interpretations,observations and explain me the present condition of his heart.I humbly request you all for your support as soon as possible because i dont know much about these things and is it needed to go for a Angiography. ****I have attached a DOCUMENT with HIS TMT test results,echo-cardiography.Please let me know if you need any other reports and i will attach them. Waiting for your valuable inputs God Bless you currently taking these Medications- (1) Envas 0.5 mg - Twice Daily (2)Concor AM 2.5 mg - once daily (3)Storvas -once daily (4)Aciloc - 300 mg -daily once (5)Nutriva - Once daily (6) MADHUMEHARI - effective remedy for diabetes (7) A cough Syrup-Because he has deep cough (**Dont know how he got the cough because he never takes cold water or any sort of cold items) TMT TEST RESULTS:- INTERPRETATION- Summary:Resting ECG:RBBB.Functional Capacity:markedly decreased(by 40%).HR Response to Exercise:appropriate.BP Response to Exercise:appropriate response. Chest Pain:none Arrhythmias:none. ST Changes: Depression horizontal.Overall impression:Positive stress test suggestive of ischemia.

Hi, I am a 43 year old female that smokes!!! I have been having a few health problems in the last 2 years. It all started 2 years ago when I got bloodwork done and my Doctor told me my blood sodium level was a point below normal, she told me to drink gatorade to restore my level. Eventually the symptoms associated with low sodium levels went away. Then last year I went to her with similar symptoms and more bloodwork was done, the results were that I had Hypothyroidism and a B12 deficiency, she put me on synthyroid 100mcg and 1000 mcg of vitamin B12 pills. I made her do more bloodwork 3 months later and things were looking up. In May of last year I was feeling lousy and went to the emergency room because I was having palpations and they found my synthroid dose was too high and lowered it to 88mcg, after a while I started feeling better. I told the emergency room doctor about heart problems running in my family so they ordered a stress test which came back good, they told me I wouldn't have a heart attack from blocked arteries. When I told my family doctor (years ago) about the heart problems in my family she told me " you don't need to worry about that because it doesn't affect women until menopause" and wouldn't send me for any tests!!!!!! In December 2013 I began having palpations, so I asked the doctor for more bloodwork and everything came back within normal levels, at that time I showed her that I was having edema in my ankles, she checked my blood pressure which was 117/74, my heart rate was 88, so she sent me for an E.C.G. It supposedly showed that everything was normal except my resting heart rate at that time was 92 b.p.m, so my doctor put me on 150mg of Rythmol 2 x a day. On the 25th of January I called 811 (nurses hotline for health inquiries), they patched me through to 911 who immediately dispatched an ambulance because my symptoms sounded like a heart attack!!! When the paramedics did an E.C.G on me it showed I was in sinus tachycardia and left atrial enlargement, the E.R doctors put in a request for a holter monitor and an echocardiogram. I saw my doctor on the following Monday and she said she "doesn't believe it's my heart" and gave me anti-anxiety meds. With all the things I have just told you what else could it be? Even with the Rythmol I am still having light-headedness, edema, breathlessness, occasional chest pains and fast heart rate; this morning it was 110b.p.m, now though my blood pressure is dropping yesterday it was 107/68. It normally has been pretty close to 120/80. What do you suggest?

I have had two severe chest pain and it seemed the heart would burst in my chest. Doctors here in Mo tested me with nuclear stress test and the heart showed good . Could colon have anything to effect the heart, I have lost a good deal of weight and perhaps could I be low in Potassium ? In 2003 I was hospitalized with a possible heart attack and the doctor did not determiner it was a heart attack or not. Then I was sent to do the tread mill stress nothing showed.

hi my mum is 65 and has never been ill all her life until last year when she had a heart attack and had stents fitted and has been on medication ever since, for the past couple of days she has been feeling dizzy and it has been going black like she is going to pass out , she dosnt pass out but she cannot hold anything down either and she has low blood pressure. she went to the doctors yesterday and he sent her home with some antibiotics saying if your no better in a couple of days come back and we will send you for a chest xray. she went home took an antiobiotic and threw it straight back up, so she went to bed. the doctor just said he thinks it is some kind of infection. I am worried because my mum carries on regardless but she isn t and looks ill , I just think because of the low blood pressure the doctor should have sent her to the hospital and I am very worried about her . do you know what is wrong with her ?
