What Does A Dr Mean When He Say A Heart Attack Is In The Back Of The Heart

It all depends on which one of the coronary arteries (or its branches) is the most blocked and supplies a large part of the heart.

Prinzmetal angina: Prinzmetal, variant, or vasospastic angina are all the same. The coronary arteries go into spasm and reduce blood flow, just like a migraine headache.

By : By the date of this post, almost a week has passed. If you have not seen a doctor already it is wise to do so. The symptoms you described can indicate angina, or myocardial infarction (mi, also known as heart attack).

Regardless you will need a work up, which will include an ekg (test that checks the electrical activity of your heart), this test can give an indication if there is concern for an mi or risk of one. After a detailed history, exam, and testing, your doctor will be able to give you a likely diagnosis and treatment plan. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
