tension in the abdominal area which was traveling to the heart

hi 2 nights ago my boyfriend aged 25 woke up cpmplaining of tension in the abdominal area which was traveling to the heart. this only lasted a few minutes but his heart rate very irregular and he had to take in very strong deep breaths. for around 2 weeks he has been suffering from discomfort in the chest sometimes with pain. why is this? could he have or be having signs of an impending heart attack? im very worried but i think hes too scared to go to doc.

Well if it was a heart attack something eles would be going on. It could be different things,like gas,pull muscle,angina that's when u have chest pains coming from the heart,etc. It;s so many things. Tell him to take something for gas. No baking soda,cuz u don't know what it is.Take something for it see how it works. Than nothing works he needs to go to the doctor.

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.

I am a 53 yo female worried about having a heart attack. I have at times had pain in my ribs on my right side that travels towards my spine. Usually, Advil or Bayer aspirin helps the discomfort. For the past week, this mid back pain seems to be coming through to the upper center abdomen. I had taken several 500 mg bayer aspirin over a couple day period so I don t know if I just irritated my stomach or if this is heart related. I have no shortess of breath, dizziness or sweating. I was taking Metroprolol (25 mg 2x daily) and also had Lisinoprol added (one 5mg daily) as I had a echocardiogram which showed a slight enlargement on the left side of my heart. My total cholesterol is high at 250, my HDL is good at 63. My doctor hasn t put me on medication - trying to get it down by diet (I am overweight). While I feel some discomfort in my chest, am I worrying needlessly? I know an echocardiogram doesn t show blocked arteries but, could it be assumed after watching the blood flow to/from the heart that there could be blockages? Should I rest easier knowing that I ve just had the echo and my dr didn t seem needlessly concerned?

Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.

What Dr. in Lubbock can we have and Echocadiagram done in the office? I have a 75 year old male with heart failure that the pulse ox machine says his heart rate is between 30 and 65 beats. The cardiologist says that his heart is beating 114 beats a min. It is just that the first beat is hard and the other 2-5 are a slight beat. Enough to pick up on the 12 lead but not enough to pick up in a pulse. His feet are swelling and when we elevatethem the swelling goes down after 48 hrs but his lungs fill. When his feet swell they up his Lasix to 60 mg but it does not work for 4-5 days. Then run run run. Where can we have an echo done in Clovis, NM or Lubbock Texas?
