Chest Pain
Chest pain is one of the most common reasons for emergency room visits. So, it is a symptom you should not ignore. You may experience a sharp, aching, burning, or crushing sensation anywhere between your neck and abdomen. In more severe cases, chest pain can be an early warning sign of an impending heart attack. Often, chest pain may signal a variety of conditions—many of which aren't even related to the heart. Almost all heart attacks involve some discomfort in the center of the chest. The pain can last for a couple of minutes, return, and the cycle continues. In some cases, you may experience silent symptoms. Such symptoms include breathlessness, heartburn, nausea, or fatigue.
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fainting, sudden nausea or vomiting
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Breaking out in a cold sweat
  • Flushing
  • Numbness, pain, or prickling sensations. Can occur along the back, one (or both) arms, jaw, neck, or stomach
  • Uncomfortable pain in the center of the chest such. Described as a squeezing, tightening, or burning, sensation.
  • Sudden aching in one or both arms

Chest Pain Features

Your chest pain could point to one of the following heart-related diseases:

  • Stable Angina: A chest pain or discomfort as a result of reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. This type of pain usually occurs with activity, excitement, or emotional stress and is relieved with rest. It will begin at a low level, then gradually increases within the next few minutes. 

 

  • Unstable Angina: Occurs when your heart doesn’t get enough blood flow and oxygen. The severity and duration of angina may vary. If you notice a sudden change in chest pain, you may be experiencing unstable angina. Remember: Unstable angina symptoms may signal an impending heart attack. Because of this—when these symptoms arise—call your local ER as quickly as possible.

 

 

  • Pulmonary Embolism: This occurs when a clot (typically from your leg or pelvic veins) lodges in a pulmonary artery of your lung. Since the clot cuts off blood flow to your lungs, a pulmonary embolism is potentially life-threatening.

Heart Valve Disease: The heart has four valves; each opens and closes to keep blood flowing in the right direction. This also ensures proper circulation. If a valve malfunctions, you may develop a heart valve disease. If you were previously diagnosed with heart valve disease and experience these symptoms, call 911 immediately.

 Remember: You must move fast during life-threatening situations. Call your doctor ASAP if you experience:

  • Persistent chest pain during the past two months that is now more severe.
  • Chest pain that occurs three or more times a day.
  • A sudden increase in chest pain that is more severe or long in duration.
  • Chest pain at rest despite no apparent exertion or stress.

 

Call 911 or other emergency services if you have coronary artery disease diagnosed by a doctor in the past. Or if you experience chest pain that persists after taking your home treatment plan for angina.
