Mild Heart Attack Leads To Loose Motion
My dad had a massive heart attack at 60 yrs. I'm 19 yrs old and I've found out I have abnormal septal motion, poor R wave on ECG nd 60-65% EF. Causes?
Abnormal Echo?: Abnormal septal motion can't be seen on EKG. Did you have an echocardiogram? If so, clarify that they've ruled out a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is a thickening of the heart muscle. Also clarify the type of "massive heart attack" your Father had, as the status of his condition will determine how hard of an investigation should be done to look for HCM. ...Read more
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more

I have a dull ache in the center of my back that hasn't gone away for over an hour along with anxiety and diarrhea. Could it be a heart attack?
Extremely unlikely.: Though arterial Ds typically begins in childhood, it is in the wall of arteries, not opening, arteries enlarge http://goo. Gl/aRhOU2 & plaque ruptures >clots in the openings rarely occur until decades later. The rate of progression is typically slower in women pre-menopausal. Optimize NMR lipoproteins, HbA1c, SBP, don't smoke & lifetime arterial Ds problems are largely eliminated. Study my answers. ...Read more
Can vomiting give you a heart attack, why would an ECG be done when you're having vomiting and diarrhea?
Would heart race then go back to normal with a heart attack? Chest tightness, back pain, diarrhea. Or panic attack?
Not typical: Change in heart rate is not something people who are having a heart attack usually report. Chest tightness or pressure is, often associated with activity that increases the heart rate. Low back pain or diarrhea would not be a sign of heart attack, but mid-back pain can be a symptom of a heart issue, especially a problem with the large chest artery, the aorta. Anxiety probable; pursue evaluation. ...Read more
No symptoms...: Usually there are no symptoms of atherosclerosis until it is severe enough to block an artery thereby blocking blood flow to a key organ like the heart or brain. Once this happens, a heart attack or stroke can result. So, prevention is the key! Keep your cholesterol level under control with diet, exercise and medication if needed. See your doctor to get your lipid levels checked! ...Read more

What's causing me to feel constant sharp pain in the center of my chest but mostly to the left side? (Could it be mild heart attack) I hope not.
Not likely: It is impossible to rule out as heart being involved in your symptoms, but the character of the pain is not suggestive of cardiac origin. A simple test to determine the origin would be to gently push over the involved area. If your pain is worsened, it is chest wall related, specifically sternocostal joints or chest muscles. If that is not the case you may need a follow up with your doc. ...Read more

Even if your arm pain is exertional it is unlikely to be cardiac in nature unless u have a strong family history ...Read more

How EXACTLY does general anesthesia lead to heart attack, stroke or death? What are the mechanisms in the drug that leads to a stroke? How does it kil
No single answer: Serious complications from GA are much more likely in pts who are already sick. If you have coronary artery disease, the stress of surgery and anesthesia can lead to heart attack. If you have already had a stroke, the same stresses can contribute to another. No one drug or technique is at fault. Surgery makes the body tend to form clots as part of healing. This can add to risk of stroke or MI. ...Read more

After a short jog I had mild discomfort/pain specifically on the left side of my chest. I know it wasn't a heart attack, but is that normal?
How does one know?: Some people have those exact symptoms and are having angina, which can be chest pain due to not enough blood flow to the heart. It could be one's guardian angel telling him to get checked out (meaning calling one's primary care doctor now to see how urgent the problem is). It might not be the heart, or it could be fatal next time one goes jogging. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more
If someone has experienced a mild heart attack, what symptoms would they notice when attempting an aerobically intense activity such as jogging?
Get cleared and be a: If you think you may have suffered a mild heart attack by all means get examined and make sure you are not at risk for a bigger one or that something can't be done to save further muscle that might be at risk. Once cleared you should start a gradual resumption of aerobic exercise and coordinate with a cardiac rehab specialist in your area. ...Read more
