I have had two episodes in the past six months in which I experienced pressure between my shoulder blades followed by a stinging pain that traveled up my neck to my jawline, and then to my ears. Both times the discomfort was very short in duration, although the second episode lasted longer than the first. Could this be a heart problem? I am a 57-year-old female with no significant health history at all.
What could this be? It only tends to happen when I have alot of stress on my heart. For example : I hardly got any sleep today, my dad got rushed to the hospital, my mom caused my anxiety to sky rocket etc. I went to lay down after talking to my dad in the hospital, and my heart started racing really fast, but I wasn t breathing hard or anything. Is this serious? Or only because of Anxiety? Please help, I m really worried.
My Mom just had an operation to install peace maker to make her heart work better. He also has shrinkled valves in her heart probably connected with her age. As the result of this operarion her dementia became worse and her doctor wants her to take aricept 5 mg once daily. I m not sure if it would be OK consider her heart problems. Please advise. Thank you. Sincerely, Dina K.
