Default Heart Attack Symptoms?

Looking to hear from folks that have had a heart attack. I'll preface this post with I know that you are going to tell me if I am asking these questions, just go get checked out. I am going to ask these questions because I don't have insurance and can't afford to pay off med bills for 20 years over something that may be nothing. I am healthy as far as I know with no known health issues. I've only been to the doctor a few times since I was 18 and I'll be 40 in July.

I started feeling really funny before lunch on Friday and got really light headed to the point I thought I was going to pass out a couple of times. It felt like a 200lb man was standing on my chest and I was short of breath and fatigued. This was while sitting at my desk. No pain at that point, just a tightness. I got home that evening and had my wife check my blood pressure a couple of times. First time 158/90... second time an hour later was 132/110. I wasn't feeling the crushing sensation in my chest by then so I blew it off. I was fatigued all weekend and then started having some random intermittent pains in my left shoulder and arm. Not terribly painful but attention getting. It went away so I went to bed. Today at work, the pains came back in my arm and shoulder and now my neck as well. the pain subsided now but my left arm and shoulder has felt asleep for the last 2 hours. I don't feel the pressure in my chest like I did Friday though. If it was a heart attack, wouldn't I have known it by now?

could be a number of things.

Anxiety can feel like that. But so can a heart attack.

Sound like the same symptoms my dad had with his heart attack, especially the pressure on your chest.

From a provider point of view, you at least had a cardiac event. Whether angina-warning or the full attack. The 2nd BP is most worrisome as well as the fatigue you have felt. It is not that expensive to get an EKG done to see. A heart attack can still show up and it could have been a partial thickness attack instead of a full thickness or transmural. GET THE EKG done then get help.

Been through this before and rest assured it's cheaper to get checked out than to have an emergency event. Please don't put it off another minute. The clock is ticking. Do this for your family and loved ones if not for yourself.

I would definately go get checked out. Not everyone has the same symptoms. Heart attacks are occurring to younger and younger people these days.

My symptoms werent any of the above until it was almost too late. I waited an extra day to do something about it and was lucky as you can get.

I had throbbing sensations in my teeth/jaw and then later the pressure on the chest and difficulty in beathing. Drove myself to the ER (not suppoesed to do, call ems), walked in to the ER and the next thing I knew, getting stripped down and rushed into surgery.

Go get checked out.

Your symptoms read like a google list for a heart attack.

You could have had a mild myocardial infarction with the next one being more problematic.

Definitely time to get the EKG to see if there's any blockage in the coronary arteries or damage.

Aspirin is the immediate treatment but you need to move on this. It's time critical.

Go to the freakin' doctor, Josh!!!! Many people never get the opportunity to have a 2nd heart attack. Don't mess around. Go get checked out tonight. Nothing you have going on at work is as important as your well-being.

Around ten years ago I had very similar issues. I was running 5 K’s, half marathons, and working out five days a week. No way I was having a heart attack. But, I knew my dad’s side has a tendency for heart disease. Went straight to dr’s office, stress test, and 24 hours later a stint was installed. Sure enough heart attack. Right artery blocked 90% and left 40%. Don’t mess around.

You may have a blockage which can lead to the death of the heart tissue (heart attack) They can tell in the ER if you are having an onset or if the event has happened and you are on the backside. Either way, a blockage needs to be cleared or you risk stroke, heart attack or cardiac arrest. These things do not get played with. The elevated BP is a sign that should not be ignored.

Report back when you get to the ER and the have run the EKG, XRay and drawn the 1 st blood sample.

Until then, get the wife to drive ya, NOW!

I've had 3 possibly 4. Get yo azz to the ER now!
The symptoms you just described are exactly what I felt on the night of OCT 19th 1989.
If I hadn't gone to the ER I would not be sitting here typing this. Last time I was shoveling dirt in the backyard 4 years ago. Felt like someone had put a 100lb weight on my shoulders and neck. No chest pain but I knew what it was. Bam! I got another stint put in. I was 43 years old the first time and I'll be 73 in June. By going to the ER immediately I have cheated the devil out of close to 30 years. You can do the same.
MOVE IT Bucko! And start taking asprin asap

I had my first one at 41, had all those symptoms you described for a couple months and then I was at work one day and knew there was something wrong. I left work at my lunch break and the next morning I was having a quadruple bypass. I was not over weight, didn't smoke,very active,Don't mean to sound like your parent but you need to go to the doctor.

My last heart attack I came in the house and put two Aspirin under my tongue and let them dissolve and swallowed them down with tap water. Got someone to drive me to the ER. Doctor said the Aspirin probably saved my life as I had 100% blockage in one artery and 90% on another.
Start taking aspirin now and drink plenty of water. No caffeine.

Did anybody mention get yo azz to the hospital now?
No ER can refuse to see you. Insurance or not.

Take it from someone who was relative healthy and running several miles a day, and the out of the blue I started having the horrible chest pains you described. I thought it was just stress b/c it happened at work. After it continuing of and on periodically for a few days I went to my general practitioner and he did an EKG, checked blood pressure, and listened to my heart. He said I had not had a heart attack, and everything seemed ok, but he referred me to a cardiologist just to be safe. Cardiologist did another EKG and sonogram, and saw no abnormalities, but wanted a stress test done to be certain, especially since I had a little shortness of breath. Stress test revealed a likely blockage and he had me in the heart cath lab quickly. Turned out one of the main arteries to my heart was 95 percent clogged and I would likely have had the “widow maker” heart attack had I not gotten help soon. I ended up having a stent placed, and I was a new man overnight. Take it from someone who was initially stubborn about going in b/c I assumed it could not be happening to me. Please get into a doctor and/or inquire about getting some medical insurance ASAP. Your family needs you to do so.

no one in their right Mind would tell you should walk this off. Heart attacks don’t always present with the same symptoms but you my friend have several that suggest you have or had some sort of cardiac event. I know it’s expensive with out insurance but what’s your life/ quality of life worth to you? Please see a doc.

12 years ago.
Get the EKG and blood test done at this very moment. The reason I mention blood test is that my EKG was fine. The heart in trouble puts out a couple of enzymes that they identify with heart attack.
More of a warning than a request.

As stated above, you dont have to go to hospital for EKG. I dont know know if all Dr office have them, but many do. Can do during a regular dr visit. My opinion is take asprin imediately. Schedule Dr visit asap. But honestly, I would probably go to Urgent Care Clinic or ER. Some things arent worth the risk.

X 1000 , my heart attack last year had symptoms very similar as yours . My jaw hurt the night before like someone had repeatedly punched me. I had two blockages and had two stents put in. They can check for troponin in your blood to see if you are having a cardiac event. Tell them you donít have insurance, I am sure they can help someway. I would not ignore it after now having gone through it !! I was complaining the entire time I was in the ER that I was crazy and what a waste of time and money , until they came back and said we are prepping you immediately for the cath lab!!

Went for a stress test in 2012. Lost my vision temporarily while on treadmill. Diagnosis was needing a stent. I had heart cath next day. Blockage wasn’t bad enough to get stent. Next day had a triple bypass. I had the widow maker. 90% don’t make it. Get to the doctor. My blood pressure was 210/105. GET TO THE DOCTOR!!!!! Sounds like you have a blockage.

Man, I'll tell ya this. I had a friend that had almost the same symptoms for 3 days. He thought he was just sore because he'd been cutting firewood for a couple days. He was about 40 at the time. He didn't have health insurance either. One the 3rd day he had a heart attack trying to drive to the hospital and died. I watched him take his last breaths. I'd go to the ER and worry about the bills later.

Well 100 percent said go that's pretty high. One older gentleman on here said he would bet you a steak dinner that had a heart attack. I would listen to him.

Brotha, Atleast stop by your local fire station and let them run a 12 lead on you. That wonít cost you a dime.

Go to your doc. I had similar issues, and am pretty active but scared me pretty bad. I got all tingly as well and started feeling numb in my arms and legs. I almost passed out in the shower and my wife was waiting on my go ahead to make a call. Went finally 3 days later cause I still didn'tfeel right and felt short of breath. They said it was anxiety but honestly I didn't feel like an anxious person and I still kinda had chest pain so they went ahead and did my bloodwork and EKG which all came out fine. I asked them about my chest pain and they said I could be tricking myself. Dunno that I buy that but I've been running and hunting n all still. I'd rather keep going havinch checked with a doc than not at all.
