Cardiological Symptoms Or Symptoms of Heart Problems
Hi guys my name is sanjay gupta i’m a cardiologist in york and this is more than just medicine so today I wanted to talk to you about common cardiological symptoms, a lot of people say to me ‘well could this symptom be due to my heart’ ‘could this symptom be due to my heart’ as cardiologists we are mainly concerned about four sets of symptoms the first is chest discomfort, note I say chest discomfort not pain, the second is.
Breathlessness, the third is palpitations and the fourth is dizziness or blackouts so those are the four symptoms that point towards the heart as a possible cause now it’s important to remember that there can be lots of different causes for each of these symptoms they don’t automatically have to mean that there’s something wrong with the heart and today I thought I would just give you a few tips to help guide you as to whether you’re symptoms could be related to your heart or not, so the first symptom is.
Chest discomfort ok, now you know that chest discomfort can be caused by a variety of different symptoms remember the chest wall itself can cause discomfort, underneath the chest wall you have the food pipe and if you have reflux that can cause chest discomfort, of course you have the heart and that can cause discomfort, you have the lungs and that can cause discomfort also the stomach can cause discomfort and that can be referred to the chest so there are lots.
Of different reasons for chest discomfort in terms of heart discomfort in terms of discomfort that is caused by the heart the first thing to understand is it’s often not a severe pain a lot of people say oh I didn’t have any severe pain but I did have discomfort yes it is often a discomfort it can be a tightness a heaviness, burning even but it is usually sort of not localize it’s generally all over the chest a lot of people seem to.
Attribute the radiation of the discomfort down the left arm as a major sign, that can happen with a lot of other things as well and does not automatically mean that it’s the heart but equally well if you don’t have it down the left on that doesn’t rule out the heart so important thing is its discomfort, it can go to the left arm, it can go to the right, it can often go to the back, it can often go to the jaw, usually the discomfort comes on on.
Exertion and gets better with rest that is called angina however sometimes people can get it at rest and that’s very serious if it’s coming from the heart goes it could indicate a heart attack and the way you recognize this is firstly to understand that heart attacks tend to occur in people with lots of risk factors of course they can occur in someone who doesn’t have risk factors but generally they’re uncommen, so if your below the age of 40 if you’re.
Completely well if you have no other symptoms if you’re getting a localized sharp discomfort which is stabbing in nature and lasting a few seconds then it’s unlikely to be the heart, if on the other hand you’re seventy you’re overweight you smoked in the past you have diabetes you have high blood pressure and you get this heaviness in your chest please don’t attribute that just to indegestion something else it’s important to get checked out immediately because if.
You’re getting heaviness with those risk factors then it’s a lot more likely to be the heart, often if it is a heart attack discomfort then people will feel horrible, they feel nausea, they feel clammy, they can feel dizzy, they can feel breathless and one of the hallmarks from my side when I go into emergency room and get called to see a patient with chest discomfort but I can tell because they look grey they look awful you know the color is horrible.
