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 ?
