I got chest pain, shortness of breath, fast heart beat, sharp pain in stomach, back, arm, shoulder. Are they all symthoms of heart disease ?

I got chest pain, shortness of breath, fast heart beat, sharp pain in stomach, back, arm, shoulder . they are all symthoms of heart disease . i just went to my doctor , and he gave me the usual response let s do some test and we ll see the result in the next few days . i m really worried about it. i mean, i don t want to wait a few days for the lab to do the stupid test. i mean by the time they send the doctor the result i could be dead. so my question is, if i go to emergency room, will they do the test immediately and tell me the result in a few hours ? my real question, which none of the answer has addressed, was if i go to emergency room, will they tell me the result in a few hours? or they will just do the test then kick me home and call me back for the result in a few days?

go to hospital now... if you've had a heart attack.. they will know buy your blood tests.. and yes, those results will be given to you at the hospital.... If they don't give you the results( which is extremely out of the ordinary) INSIST on them... go to the hospital..

My son is 11 yrs old. He used to be in the swimming team but once when he was in training, he felt chest pains and out of breath as well as a bit dizzy. The trainers let him lie down and he felt better and he was taken to the hospital for ECG and echodiagram. The results were normal. We also had him take the treadmill test. All tests are normal. After a few weeks, he went back to training and the same thing happened, we thought it must be because his traning is in the morning and maybe his blood sugar level is low. Nevertheless, we stopped his swimming trainings. Several weeks ago, we went on a vacation and after swimming in the beach for a while, he suddenly felt that his heart rate s very fast so i just asked him to lie down and rest. It went away but that night during dinner, he complained of fast heart beat again and had to lie down in the restaurant. I could feel his heartbeat when i put my hand on his chest. We were thinking, maybe he just lacked sleep cause he had been sleeping very late at nite and waking up real early the past few days. Just tonight, after dinner, he complained again of fast heart rate. Since we have a BP and pulse monitor at home, i checked him and got a heart rate of 124 on his left wrist and 195 pulse rate on his right. BP is 96/58 on his left and 105/62 on his right. He used to tell me too that sometimes he would feel that his heart rate would suddenly gets fast. Should we get some more test? Is this normal for a kid his age? Should he stop all forms of exercise and start eating a strict diet? He s 135cm tall and is around 35 kg in weight.

I had a heart attack a few months back and had an echogram taken which measures your valves and muscles and other parts of your heart. The results I received was that my heart is funcitoning at 25 percent at this time and my muscles are dead. I had 36 sessions of cardiac rehab also and if I walk a short distance I get shortness of breath also. Can I live a normal life with my heart at 25 percent and am I a high risk of living a short life. Thank you

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
Regards,
