Hi, I am 35 years, 65 Kg, height 5’6”, male from India. I am having sharp pain in chest slightly leftwards for last 10 years. Sometimes this pain is also felt simultaneously in left shoulder or left arm or left head. Duration of this pain is 1- 5 seconds, mostly while resting but its frequency and intensity is not certain. Sometimes it occurs while warming up or cooling down. Also noticed, that it is related to cold weather. Sometimes left part of head is numb and has pulsating pain. I do exercise, vegetarian except eggs, almost no dairy product, and no processed food. No tea coffee, no alcohol. Been smoker till 2008, quit. Had stomach acidity issue till 2012 but no more at all. There is no problem at all exercising in fact I feel great and energized doing it. None of my maternal or paternal relative have BP or cardiac issue except my younger brother who underwent dental’s procedure due to Aortic Dissection in march 2013, but he have a genetic condition called Marfan’s Syndrome, no other family member have this. I always thought it is muscular or gastro related, so it never bothered me until November 2015. Last November on two successive nights I woke up feeling my chest pounding hard. Checked my BP and Heart rate everything normal on both occasions, but was not able to sleep well those nights every time fall asleep it woke me up I can feel my heartbeat and whole body is shaking in rhythm with it but my heart rate was absolutely normal. On third day all this panicked me I checked my BP it was raised so went to physician, BP 150/90 he told me its anxiety or due to some food, gave medicines for BP, anxiety and antacids. It helped me sleep, symptoms are as it is but milder now. Next day went to see cardiologist, I was too worried, he checked my BP 170/100, and did ECG, Tropnin T and ECHO all normal. Gave medicines for BP, anxiety and five days later did TMT, also normal. My BP came normal next day of visiting cardiologist and never rose again. I also assumed it to be anxiety and stopped all medications, in 30-40 days everything was normal except that sharp occasional pinching which I was having for years but now more frequent. Summers of 2016 was ok not much issue. In july 2016 suddenly foul smell (like from dead bodies) started coming from my lower centre chest. This smell is totally different from my body odor and it continued after that till date. This November I felt some itching in centre chest on at least five different occasions while doing sudden exertion from rest like climbing a floor or getting up from chair or bed and rushing to open door. On night of 28-nov-2016, I felt sudden tightening in my left upper chest for 1 or 2 seconds, during sexual exertion, it felt like something had grabbed it tried to find the muscular nature by examining different chest and shoulder muscles but didn’t find anything wrong. Checked BP it was normal. On 1-dec consulted cardiologist, was nervous, BP 170/90, I denied testing this time but he said in the wake of new event we have to do all tests again. LIPID, HBAC, ECG, ECHO, Tropnin T, Na & K, TMT all normal. But this time ECG machine interpretation was “acute MI (inferior)” and Tropnin T level was 13.65 against normal value of 14. Does this is anything to worry about? What is that bad smell? As symptoms are intensifying year after year, what may be the cause? What further investigation can be recommended, if any? Cold weather increases it, why? Why pinching and heaviness is felt on left chest mostly while resting?
What is the life expectancy after stroke? What are the practices to be done to avoid stroke? What is the risk % of stroke in young ages?
Why cholesterol & triglycerides increase in blood of human body what is the precaution to maintain it.
After taking meals I feel burning in my chest and some time with pain in heart side so is it normal or I have to check up for that?
Dear doctor. If an overweight person reduces his weight by worrying or stress, what will happen to his health? And will his LDL OR HDL cholesterol level reduce? If it happens, is it good for his health?
The word heart attack is making me weak please tell me some medicine. Because before 2 months my uncle's death was by same problem.
I am 30 weeks pregnant. I am feeling too much discomfort and pain in my chest. May be because of the baby pressing the diaphragm. The pain is intolerable. And making me cry and is more intense when lying on bed even in the side position. Cannot sleep because the discomfort. Its severe.
Heart failure occurs when the heart fails to pump blood around the body and organs for oxygen and nutrients. As blood moves through the heart and body at a slower rate, pressure in the heart increases. The chambers of the heart stretch to hold more blood to be able to pump through the body. This helps the blood to move but eventually the heart muscle walls weaken, unable to pump blood efficiently. The kidneys, in response cause the body, to retain fluids. The leakage of fluid in the tissues and the organs congests the heart, leading to heart failure.
Any of the following conditions can be responsible for weakening the heart and causing heart failure.
1. Coronary artery disease: this is a disease of the arteries supplying blood and oxygen to the heart that causes decreased blood flow to heart muscle. If the arteries get blocked or narrowed (due to the buildup of fatty deposits), the heart fails to get oxygen and nutrients, which may eventually lead to heart failure.
2. Heart attack: if the artery becomes suddenly blocked or the plaques formed by fatty deposits rupture, it can lead to a heart attack. This happens due to the formation of a blood clot which may block blood flow to an area of heart muscle.
3. High blood pressure: high blood pressure puts an extra strain on the heart for it to work harder to circulate blood throughout the body. As a result, the heart muscle may become stiff or weak to effectively pump blood.
4. Heart muscle weakness: this condition can have many causes including diseases, infections, drug and alcohol abuse. Genetic factors may also contribute to the weakening of heart muscles.
5. Other diseases: chronic diseases like diabetes, HIV, hyperthyroidism or a buildup of iron or protein can also lead to heart failure.
