What are the different symptoms of heart attack, cardiac arrest and stroke?
Many people put cardiac arrest, heart attack and a stroke in the same category. But all these conditions differ in symptoms, severity and background. Making a difference between these three health issues is really important, in order to know how to help a patient and how to prevent any of the conditions becoming more severe. To learn and educate yourselves more, read the full explanation of these conditions below:
1. Heart attack
This represents a circulation disorder. In case a person's blood flow is blocked or oxygen deprived, the blood does not get to the heart muscle and if left untreated immediately, could kill the organ. It is important to know that the heart is still working, when someone suffers a heart attack.
2. Cardiac arrest
This condition is known as an electrical disorder. When someone's electrical activity in the heart is disrupted, tachycardia happens and the blood flow immediately stops moving thought the body. When this happens, the heart stops working altogether.
This is also known as a brain disorder. Strokes are divided into three types:
Ischemic stroke- when the artery carrying blood and oxygen to the brain is blockedtransient ischemic attack (tia) also familiar as a mini stroke; it occurs when there is a short artery blood flow to the brainhemorrhagic stroke- this represents a ruptured artery inside the brain
Heart attack symptoms:
Here are the most common symptoms that can indicate heart attacks:
(angina) burden inside the chest, mistaken for indigestion. It repeats every few minutes. body pain- especially in the neck, back, abdomen, jaw, arms (particularly the left one) wheezing and shallow breathingcold sweatingdizziness and fatigue episodesanxietycoughingnausea
Treatment for these symptoms is usually via medication and incorporating a healthy diet.
Cardiac arrest symptoms:
These symptoms often occur minutes before cardiac arrest happens. Here they are:
Weakness black out fainting shallow breaths chest pain excessive palpitation
In some cases the person can also identify the following symptoms:
Sudden collapse shortage of breath weak or no pulse little or no responsiveness
Cardiac arrests are dangerous, because the symptoms occur rapidly and are usually lethal.
Nausea blurred speech face, arm or leg numbness or paralysis (especially on one side) headaches and vomiting mental disorientation, forgetfulness of names and places, distraction and loss of concentration impaired vision and double vision excessive sweating walking issues and dizziness transient ischaemic attack (tia)

I've so much of gastric problem these days. Before I used to get gastric problem but that was because I don't take meals at regular intervals. But now a days even if I'm taking meals regularly three tyms a day I had to suffer with gastric problem. Actually I stay in hostel. So Do you say that the people cooking is adding soda while cooking rice? And also I couldn't eat more rice even when I'm hungry. And the major problem is that when I am tensed like before exams, etc, this gastric problem attacks suddenly, stomach pain and that will be so much uncomfortable for me. What can I do for this? Please help me get out of this problem. Thank you!
I am having slight left side abdominal pain. Now im in 9th week. I drunk a small glass of barley water. accidentally I mixed a spoon of salt. After drinking that my stomach is making sounds and left side pain has started. Is this to worry?
I am 29 years old having Hypothyroid problem before 2 months I have taken antibiotic course 3 times because my chest and neck was filled with cough. But somehow I came over with that problem but after that I started gastric problem so much that after every meal I almost vomit little bit. I consulted to gastroenterology my reports are normal so he has given me 1 week medicine, problem is reduced but I still fell uneasy from evening to night.
My acidity problem started around jan 2013. Initially, I would feel too full or have slight burning sensation in the stomach after a heavy/spicy meal, which would further lead to a feeling of anxiety in the chest in the middle of the night. Hot/luke warm water and a quick bite of banana brought instant relief. A few months later, this became a more frequent phenomenon (twice a week) to feel heavy and experience burning sensation. In sep 2013, after a visit to a general physician, I was prescribed pantascot 50mg in case of severe burning. I took this medicine only in worst case scenarios. There was slight improvement. Apr 2014, after experiencing the symptoms for over a month - a visit to the general physician, I was prescribed digene syrup (between meals) and pantascot 50mg (empty stomach) for 30 days. This course brought significant changes and I felt quite comfortable for a good long time. Sep 2014, the burning sensation & chest anxiety recouped once again. Another visit to general physician, I was asked to repeat the same course of digene and pantascot. Additionally, a full body checkup was performed (blood profile, thyroid, sugar etc.). All reports were normal while there was asymptomatic diagnosis of thyroid. Doctor advised a retest of thyroid in 3-6 months as the test results weren't alarming. Another thyroid test in mar 2015 revealed nothing significant. The burning sensation slowly started increasing in apr 2015. Whether there was too much gap between meals or heavy meals, in both instances chest anxiety was experienced with a feeling of panting/lack of air (experiencing tightness of clothes). Since apr 2015, pantascot became a regular dose to lead a peaceful day. Due to increasingly frequent chest anxiety and no significant results of pantascot, endoscopy was performed in aug 2015. Test report: duodenum shows diffuse erythema endoscopic impression- duodenitis - acidic peptic disease, no ulcer. Medicines prescribed: before meals - omeprazole 20 mg (45 days) twice a day after meals - tinidazol 500 mg + ulcer od 500 mg (14days) but after the medicines were over I am back to square one. I do understand that homeopathy has the best solution for this and hence request you to please revert.
