I have a slight heart attack. wat can i do?

I have a slight heart attack. wat can i do?help me? I have a small problem with my heart, sometimes i have a slight heart attack. It lasts about haft or one minute. I have a breathing difficulty, just a little bit. In most cases, I wasn t working hard or having strong emotion and never lost consciousness. None of my parents or relatives has heart disease.Two months ago, I made an electrocardiogram for thyroid operation but the diogram said everything is normal. So what should I do now? am I sick seriously or not? is there any posibility that s a symptom of heart disease? Many thanks I didnt feel palpitations when it happened. I haven t done exercises for 2 years. so it seems I have to go to the doctor as soon as possible... :)

hi,thanks for query.Your symptoms needs evaluation.On general it can be said that since you had a normal cardiogram and examination by a doctor,chances of heart problem are less.You may be having anxiety which can mimic heart problems at times.You have not give your age and gender ,which might help in better suggestion from my side.Any way there is nothing wrong in consulting your primary care physician and get things cleared and have proper diagnosis.
wishing you good health.

We cannot tell you what is wrong with you nor tell you how serious without examining you? Much less, if we are not doctors. It's best that you consult a cardiologist who might recommend you to undergo some tests. Ultimately, you may need to do an angiogram (insert a minitube into your vein and inject a dye and scanned by some x-ray machine) to see if there are any blockages in your cardio-vascular system. That's what happened to me after I underwent a stress test i.e. run on the treadmill and have the probes check my heartbeat pattern. The stress test showed some irregularity in pattern which led to my cardiologist recommend angiogram. I was given a clean bill of health i.e. no blockages! (yay!). Quite a few doctors I asked says that the stress test is not 100% accurate (even going as low as 50%!!) but at least it led to me doing a more accurate one. Now, I feel more at ease. So, my advice - Go see a cardiologist...NOW! Before it is too late. Send me an email to let me know how it went. All the best.

I m a 24-year-old female. Slightly overweight, haven t smoked a cigarette in 2 years, but use an electronic cigarette. I have been experiencing a pain in my chest since this morning, on my left side. I ve been experiencing a sense of nausea, without actually getting sick, for about an hour. It feels as if it s a hunger pain in my stomach, but I had just eaten. Also, I feel slightly dizzy. I m worried that I might need to go to the hospital, but also feel like I m just being paranoid. What is the likelihood that this is a heart attack? I heard that they can be silent, almost unrecognizable, in women.

So last night and tonight, actually started close to the same time I started having a slight almost tightness feeling, in the left side of my chest pretty much where the bottom rib is around that area. So it doesn t really hurt but I feel something there, it hasn t been there during the day yesterday or today, and it went away a little before I went to be last night. I didn t do anything strenuous or to get my heart rate up before either time. I have no other symptoms of a heart attack I looked them up, and I keep burping after it happens, and then as soon as I burp it feels like heart burn for a sec and then goes away what is this ?

Hi I have had a holter ecg done and my average heart rate was 111 with the highest 180 and the lowest 60. I am very tired and feel as if I am trembling the whole time. I get breathless very easily and feel very emotional. The ecg was not normal but my GP merely said that I had a few extra beats. Should I be worried?

I m a 47 female with a history of anxiety. However, I am a firm believer that my anxiety is a reaction from the pain I expierience and not the other way around. I went to my Cardiologist last December and he performed, Echo, EKG, Blood Test, Ultrasound, and even checked my Carotid Artieries (for stroke)... All negative Today I have been expieriencing the following discomfort: pain in and around the collarbone (both sides), pain in and around both shoulderblades, tightness in front of upper chest, pain under my chin. Any suggestions? I also take an aspirin every morning... is that more harmful than helpful?

Hello , I am a 24 years old guy . I was diagnosed with Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome four years ago . I have experienced few Supra-ventricular attacks after the diagnosis, And sometimes I feel premature ventricular beats PVCs . But recently I realized that my heart beats began to change in terms of intensity and smoothness . Today , for the first time in my life I have felt many strange consecutive beats lasted up to 20 seconds , Those beats were more likely PVCs . I was confused but conscious and I hastened to the clinic in my school where my heart was monitored by ECG . ..I am afraid that my heart began to develop Ventricular Tachycardia especially after taking into account the fact that my recent ECGs showed a more widened QRS complex - about 125 mm - and obvious Delta wave. Apparently I need radio-frequency ablation ,is this procedure available at your medical center ? ... How much does it cost ? Thank You

I have been having stabbing pain in my chest for a while. It is only in my heart and it doesn t matter what I am doing, the pain is always there. It does get worse if I bend over or do activity. I am on Voltaren gel and Voltaren meds. I had an EKG done and it was normal. I am scheduled for an ultrasound, chest xray, blood work, and a stress test. I have had this problem since I was a child, but it was never this bad. The pain went away quickly and it was never there all the time. It was just a once in a while kind of thing. What is wrong with me and should I be at the ER right now?
