I had an ultrasound done near my chest, stomach, and throat, would this have shown an aortic anuyurism or any other heart problems? Had done in nov.

Ultrasound: Ultrasound exams are area specific. If you had a neck/throat ultrasound, it wouldn't show anything in the chest (aneurysm/heart). If you had a cardiac echo, it would show the aorta and the heart but not stomach or neck. You'll need to ask your doc for the specific information that concerns you. ...Read more

Heart family history: Family history of heart disease is often clinically important, and an indicator that preventive evaluation and treatment may be especially valuable.

What could cause stomach pain and an irregular heart beat?

What could cause stomach pain and an irregular heart beat?

Irregular heart beat: Pain sensors on the heart are often inaccurate. Occasionally heart irritation can tell your brain that you're experiencing pain in the abdomen, or even the neck, back, arms, or part of the chest away from the heart itself. Also, similar nerves that feed heart regulation, also send signals to the abdomen and stomach. Get a thorough history & physical examination with your doctor or cardiologist ...Read more

HR is normal, but...: The pain in your right upper abdomen could be due to fatty infiltration of the liver or be from the gall bladder. I don't know your height, but at 250 lbs.

Get an ultrasound. ...Read more

Night 7 of terrible chest/stomach pain? Indigestion? I am unable to sleep through it and nothing is helping. My heart has been checked and is o.k.

ABDOMINAL CHEST PAIN: Gastro-esophageal reflux disease caused by the reflux of gastric acid from your stomach into the esophagus, could be the problem. Pain located more in the middle of your belly, might be due to an stomach ulcer or inflammation of your gall bladder or bowels. Seek medical attention to help sort this out. If the pain changes with Mylanta or Maalox, it is probably acid related. ...Read more

Abd pain = get seen: Abdominal pain has many possible causes, some quite serious. When abdominal pain is severe, it is very important to get it checked out in person. If primary care physician's office is closed, then an urgent care center may be appropriate, or, if there is a fever of 101 or inability to have a bowel movement or confusion, ER or a 911 call (if unable to get someone else to drive) may be appropriate. ...Read more

Be especially concerned if your son is falling off his height ; weight curves, awakens from sleep with distress, has symptoms that are worsening in intensity ; frequency, is passing blood, missing a lot of school, has medical risk factors. ...Read more
