Hello.: Hello. Usually the pain of myocardial infarction is not so well circumscribed. However, you had tachycardia (rapid heart rate), chest pain, and diaphoresis (sweating) and you are not young. Didn't mention if your breathing was impacted. Although the actual event as it was occuring won't be captured on an ekg; I think it is still prudent to be evaluated. I do not know if you were having a cardiac arrythmia.
Here are possible symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack.
Even though you are feeling fine now, I recommend that you advise your doctor of this event and that you be evaluated. Take care. ...Read more

Other than on my arm pits and in between my chest, I don't perspire much. Even in those areas, perspiration is mild. Is that normal?

Other than on my arm pits and in between my chest, I don't perspire much. Even in those areas, perspiration is mild. Is that normal?

Mild sounds good: A person who doesn't sweat a lot. . . Sounds like a good thing, as long as he doesn't overheat during exercise. If he sweats enough during exercise to maintain a normal body temperature, then there shouldn't be any need to sweat even more. Increased sweating, in the U.S., can mean needing more antiperspirant and deodorant, needing more showers and more changes of clothing, feeling sticky, etc.... ...Read more

I have been using voxamin. Seazed using it since 4 months. Facing irregular beat excess perspiration and tingling in head. Should I be checked seroton?

Luvox/ fluxoxamine: Serotonin syndrome is not the issue, but if you had a seizure on it, and are on other meds, you need your doctor to have you evaluated by a neurologist, you need a Luvox (fluvoxamine) blood level to see if it is too high, your psychiatrist should check for interactions with other bipolar meds (and I hope you are on at least one anticonvulsant mood stabilizer), and a test for cyp3a4, cyp1a2, cyp 2c19, cyp 2d6. The symptoms that you have are from Luvox (fluvoxamine) toxicity according to a monograph that I read. It recommended that you contact your doctor immediately should any of those symptoms occur. ...Read more
