If you arrive in the Emergency room, the E.R. physician will first treat you. If you have positive enzymes and ecg evidence for an infarction (heart attack), then the Cardiologist will be called for interventional cath. If bypass is necessary then a thoracic surgeon will operate.

Hi. I am really hoping that a doctor can help me. I have dealt with panick attacks my whole life. For a good couple of months now, they have been so bad. I was thinking that maybe it was becuase I have been living with my mom now. I have lived with my dad and mommom my whole life. And growing up, I had no clue who my mom even was. Of course I knew her name, and what she looked like but it s different living with someone else and actually having brothers and sisters now, and adapting to a different lifestyle. Anyways.. My panick attacks really scare me. Sometimes like last night, I wake up out of my sleep and my heart was beating so fast and I was anxious.. I started to have a panick attack. I constantly have these scary thoughts that freak me out and make me think that I am going crazy.. I can t ever calm myself down sometimes. These thoughts are scary. I am only 16 and I am afraid that I won t make it any farther in life sometimes because they are so bad. Growing up I was never a happy person. People used to call me smiley because I never smiled. Some people are just born with a nice, happy going, bubbly personality but not me. I am always in a bad mood and upset. I am very sensitive too. I really want to know how I can stop these panick attacks. My scary thoughts literally make me feel like I am going crazy and I start freaking and it is hard to explain to someone what it is and what I am going through. My mommom who I lived with my whole life, said that panick attacks run in the fun and that I don t need medicine for what I am going through. I am scared to take medicine too. I am scared that it would make my mind even worse. My sister said that maybe I should go and see a therapist. I can talk to that. And maybe they can put me to sleep or something. I don t know what she meant.. But please. I want to be happy and have these scary thoughts and panick attacks to go away. I wish I didn t always think so negitive all the time.. Please someone help!!! -Kay

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination.
I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
