Am a 23 year old female i weight170 pound two day am experiencing pain in the left side of my chest more like in the breast could sign of heart attack?

Yes but not likley: Chest pain can be from heart but in your case this would be less likely given age. Other possibilities would be pulmonary embolus (blood clot in lung), this is usually with shortness of breath, but not always. Also esophogeal reflux/spasm. Also, musculoskeletal causes are the most common. If it gets worse, or doesn't go away, or is with shortness of breath, seek immediate help. ...Read more

What are the main signs of a heart attack in a woman im 47 years old and I have been having some pain in the left side of my neck and upperback

I : I will list some of the 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. You asked specifically about symptoms in women. The following statistics are from a national institute of health study. 43% of women had no chest pain. 58% were short of breath; 55% had marked weakness; 43% experienced fatigue, with cold sweats in 39% & dizziness in 39%. According to the study preceding their heart attacks women experienced the following symptoms: unusual fatigue - 70%; sleep disturbance - 48%; shortness of breath - 42%; indigestion - 39% and anxiety - 35%. I hope this helps. Take care. ...Read more

I am 30 years old and I have been experiencing swelling in my hands, chest discomfort , and body aches.. Could this be signs of heart disease?

No: Heart disease does not cause swelling of the hands. More likely you have fluid retention related to hormonal influences. Body aches are a common complaint and non-specific. If they respond to Ibuprofen or naproxen, no further evaluation is indicated. Otherwise, a rheumatological diagnosis should be pursued. Best wishes, Elizabeth. ...Read more

What is involved testing for heart disease? What age should screening start? I'm wondering if I should be tested for heart disease with my regular physical. I'm 45 years old but have some early signs like high blood pressure. What tests are used to screen

What is involved testing for heart disease? What age should screening start? I'm wondering if I should be tested for heart disease with my regular physical. I'm 45 years old but have some early signs like high blood pressure. What tests are used to screen

Risk factors.: You don't need screening for heart disease per se, but rather for factors that can lead to heart disease. BP, cholesterol, diabetes, weight/BMI are things that one should be screened for. At 45, you should definitely have all of those screens. Also, high blood pressure is not a sign of heart disease, but rather a condition that can lead to heart disease if left untreated. ...Read more
