Pinch Feeling In Heart
Chest pain: The most common causes of chest pain in primary care practice include musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal causes, followed by cardiac, psychiatric, pulmonary, and other causes. Any patient with a recent onset of chest pain who may be potentially unstable based upon history, appearance, or vital signs, should be transported immediately to an emergency department. Heart attack needs to be ruled-outSee 1 more doctor answer
My friend been feeling this pinch feeling on her heart. She told me its painful. It comes and goes, and I was wondering what's wrong with it?
Age: If she is old, definitely needs cardiac w/u.
I have a sharp, pinching feeling below my heart intermittently about twice a week when inhaling. Can it be a heart problem?
My boyfriend is in pain right now. Here is his pain explanation: When he breathes it hurts. Shortness of breath. Sharp pinching feeling on his heart.?
How can we help?: If he already has an in-person relationship w/his HT doc, get him a sick call appt today w/his HT doc because he needs a physical exam. Does he have asthma? He may need a steroid burst? Does he have any signs of an infection? He may need antibiotics (unless it's viral). Did this come on suddenly? Take him to the ER now to make sure worst-case scenarios ie spontaneous PTX & DVT/PE are ruled out.See 1 more doctor answer
During workout I started feeling a pinch in the left side of chest. Not pain just a pinch when I do specific moves. Should I worry for heart disease?
Don't worry Be Happy: If you can point to the area of the chest pain with one finger as you are describing, you most likely do NOT have pain originating from the heart. Cardiac pain is diffuse and is associated with nausea, vomiting, feeling light headed, sweating, fatigue and anxiety. You will likely have shortness of breath with exertion or even at rest. Keep exercising! Have fun.See 1 more doctor answer
Why does the muscle left of my lumbar spine heart? The pain is like a pintch and tight feeling. Cures? Treatments?
Sprain/strain: At your age, the most common reason for paraspinal muscle pain would be sprain/strain. This can happen even if you don't recall the exact injury. Conservative treatment including progressive activity, anti-inflammatory meds, physical therapy, ice and/or heat, and topical over the counter treatments such as aspercreme should help.
Hard to know: Poking sensation in heart does not sound worrisome for heart disease especially in 35 yo female. Benign nature would be supported by lack of exertional symptoms and negative family hx of structural disease. Would be worthwhile to have ekg and a good listen to ensure nothing is amiss, but at end of day, this sounds to be more musculoskeletal or perhaps esophageal.
Understandable: When you are heartbroken always know that you are truly loved for who and what you are even if mr wrong did not see those wonderful qualities you have. Now is the time to go to the gym and exercise, to distract yourself from the sad feelings. Spend time with friends and allow yourself to talk about it for a week and then force yourself to move on. Friends get tired of whining.
Chest pain: There are many causes of chest pain, the heart is but one, intestinal gas and thoracic musculoskeletal pains are very common, anxiety and panic attacks likewise are frequent causes. You should always ask the doctors who see you what they think is the problem you came for and what to do about it.
Palpitations: Palpitations have many causes from anxiety through anatomic and physiologic abnormalities. The feeling of bounding usually relates to the volume of blood pumped with each palpitation. There is no simple single answer for the question. If you're bothered by the feeling should consult a dr. To see if the problem can be clarified.
Possibly: The new meds may be causing side effects. Speak with your prescribing doctor.
Probably not: It is unlikely that a 23 year old woman will have a cardiac problem, albeit unlikely does not mean impossible. If the problem recurs, I would seek medical attention.
Skipping: Your heart is skipping beats. When that occurs, the average heart rate as determined over 15 seconds appears to be slow although that's artifactual. Avoid nicotine and caffeine. Minimize stress and get plenty of sleep. If it persists, testing such as a 24 hour recording, serum electrolytes, and an echocardiogram would be reasonable tests to further investigate it.
What do you suggest if my heart keeps feeling really weird like a dropping sensation (really slow)?
I have a question about my heart. When jogging, should I have the feeling that my heart is working hard?
Likely exertion.: Jogging is a considerable amount of exercise. It might put strain on muscles, your heart, and your lungs. Your windpipe may hurt because your body is trying to get more oxygen into it than when you are resting, even when done jogging. This is to be expected, but if you get difficulty breathing while jogging, see your doctor to test your heart as this may be a sign of heart disease.
What does it mean when I get a sudden cold feeling around my heart? What kind of disease with a symptoms is this?
More info: We would need more information: what brings it on? What makes it worse? What helps? How long does it last? How long has it been going on? What other symptoms do you get? Sorry - can't come up with a diagnosis or even a guess right now.
