Hi wellcometo Hcm.
sudden pain in haeart could be due tocoronary heart disease or some valvular conditions like MVP, aortic stenosi, aortic regurgitation, obstructive cardio myopathy
etc.Aortic dissection etc. But commonest being coronary heart disease. But first of all
weather pain is related to heart or not is important to know. So consult your doctor
and find out weather its heart pain or some thing. Thanks

Im a healthy 43 year old non smoker. I leaned forward to pick up a magazine and all of a sudden I felt a pain in my left shoulder. It also felt like a stabbing pain in my chest when I I tried to breathe. After 15 minutes it eased up so I didn t get the stabbing pain. Then I was fine. Could that be a heartattack?

1st week of intensive running- energy in upper torso suddenly seized (as in a panic attack although i was not frightened by anything) and assumed to be consumed by body when pushing my limit and then body drew from heart with one loud thud or dong sound, literally felt like energy bubble or whatever collapsed in on itself, then went to sleep 4-6 hours later for about 4-6 hours, after awakening felt like heart had been bruised and was healing. The wk end of the same week had about 3 or four stings in center of heart. None of these seemed to serious but, the following week or this week i had mild heart pains at bottom center of heart about 2 and 1 half hours later with shortness of breath. I figured it was only fatigue and it only lasted for a few seconds. Im convinced it acted in relation to me walkin while not having recovered from the morning workout.

hi. i ve just woke up from the most terrifying experience of my life. It was only a dream, but I feel overly confiident that I could ve died during this experience. In my dream I was hanging with my friends smoking when all of a sudden I felt a very real, and painful numbness I suppose in my head. This came and went in my dream and caused a lot of alarm. Everytime this happened, maybe a total of 4, I couldn t speak,and I went partially blind. and my thoughts felt very fuzzy so it was impossible for me to communicate this issue with my dream buddies. Anyway on the 4th time this happened my heart began to beat completely out of control, I would estimate 200 bpm. It was incredibly intense. This is when I woke up. my heart was still beating way out of control.I looked at the clock to see that i d only been sleeping for 30 mins, but it d felt like days. I am still shakey from this scary experience, as i ve never encountered so much pain or had such a fast heart beat. My heart still hurts. Could I have died of heart failure? what happened?

Hi, this may be a strange question, i am trying to understand what happened with a recent situation involving a family member, the person had no symptoms befor ethe incident, she started to fit, slight foaming at the mouth and long deep, slow breaths, 4 breaths before they stopped, i commenced cpr however this failed as the person died, basically im just trying to figure out what caused the fitting, as nobody at the hospital could tell me y and the post mortem came back as ischaemic heart disease due to her long standing history,but was there another factor that could have been overlooked?

Hi Doctor, My husband went for a regular health check and found that he had some difficulty in doing stage 3 of stress treadmill. So, he was asked to go for angiogram. The angiogram found a 70% block way above in the left coronary artery. Apparently, the location of the narrowing makes it unsuitable for angioplasty. So he is asked to go for bypass surgery. He has a strong family history of IHD. However, currently, he is not feeling any pain or uneasyness and he is able to do brishk walking for upto 40 minutes every day. Would you suggest we should go for bypass surgery

doctor1 MD

my mother is having pain in chest from almost past one week now, we consulted cardiologist & after ECHO test he suggested that one of the artery has only 19% blood supply to heart, she is diabetic also. is angioplasty required now. Please note that her blood cholesterol is absolutely normal from almost past one year.
