Chest Pain - Reasons Behind It!

Chest Pain - Reasons Behind It!

A sensation of pain in the chest is almost automatically associated with having a heart attack. While it is true that it is one of the best indicators of a heart attack, there are quite a few other things which can cause one’s chest to pain and not all need to necessarily be as time critical as a heart attack. So, what are the various things one should be aware of when it comes to pain in the chest? In order to understand chest pain better, it is first very important to understand the various types of chest pain better! So, there is a sharp pain, its opposite which happens to be a dull pain, burning, aching, stabbing pain, as well as a crushing sensation.

Let’s start with the elephant in the room, which is medically known as myocardial infarction or referred to as the infamous heart attack. This occurs when the muscle cells, which are located in the heart die on account of not enough blood flowing through the heart. In simple terms, the best way to get to know that one is having a heart attack is when the person feels a seriously crushing pain in the centre or the left side of the chest. What could be said to be unique about this type of pain is that resting does not make it better.

  1. Another condition of the heart which is often mistaken by the layman for a heart attack happens to be myocarditis. Inflammation of the heart muscle leads to fatigue and a fast beating of the heart. The person would also experience some difficulty breathing.
  2. Heart disease can come in multiple forms and one of those is known as CAD or Coronary Artery Disease. When there is a blockage in the blood vessels of the heart, the pain [which is known as angina] is caused by this blockage. The probably solitary source of good news is that permanent damage to the heart is not caused by CAD!
  3. That being said, a heart attack is a greater possibility. The pain in the chest could spread to the jaw or the back, or even the arm. The sensation is that of the body part being squeezed. The first thing to be done when angina occurs is to rest in order to lower the pain.
  4. While these conditions have focused on the heart, pneumonia affecting the lungs can cause deep chest ache. It causes a cough and chills. There is also likely to be pus from the respiratory tract which is coughed up!
  5. Asthma is yet another respiratory issue which could cause chest pain! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Sir, Is the variations in ECG shows the symptoms of heart attack? But he has normal cholesterol level. Is there any chance to get worry?

Variations in ECG can b due to various reasons. Many carfiovascular diaeases as well as noncardiac abnormality give rise to these variations. Heart attack has some specific changes in ECG in 60 to 70 percent of patients. Normal cholesterol level is just crude marker for lipids in body but it does not give always idea abt the visceral or vascular cholesterol deposits called as plaque burden. Pt having heart attack can have normal cholesterol levels. If chest pain with ECG variation occurs you hv to see cardiologist to get confirmation. There are noninvasive test like cardiac enzymea ECHO and stress test to give confirmation for a heart attack. Dnt worry. Just get evaluated and rule out cardiac issues.

Taking of red meat is not the only cause for high blood pressure. There are so many cause for high blood pressure like staying always in high stress, pressure packed life style, lack of physical activities, taking of more junk food or fast food, lack of sleep, hereditary cause, alcoholic person, besides that others ae kidney or heart diseases etc. So first maintain a healthy life style and healthy food habits. Avoid all sort of nicotene or alcohol use if you are taking. Daily exercise of 45 minutes minimum like jogging running. If it is not getting control then consult to your physician.

Hi, I am suffering from primary hyper tension and regularly taking olmesartan medoxomil&AMLODIPINE TABLET 1 PER DAY. ...
1) You have not mentioned the doses and frequency with which you are currently taking them Kindly do so. 2) I hope you have been investigated for any renal or cardiac causes of hypertension before being diagnosed as primary hypertension. 3) One thing is changing dosages and duration and combination please consult your treating cardiologist for the same. 4) Please follow lifestyle changes along with medications - daily 40-45 mins of brisk walking, eating a healthy diet on the lines of DASH recommendations, salt control in diet by avoiding salt containing foods like chips, namkeens, papads, pickles, ready to eat meals, fried and junk food.
