Chest pain is a discomfort or pain in the area of the chest or around it. In general, chest pain can be classified as heart-related chest pain (chest pain) and chest pain due to a heart condition (non-cardiac).
If someone has a chest pain or a heartbeat and this pain is constant, they should be evaluated by an emergency medical staff.
What is the cause of heartbeat ?
Although there are many causes for chest pain or heart rhythm, two of its major causes can be categorized in heart problems and non-cardiac causes. The heartbeat may occasionally be the result of a difference between the amount of blood supply to the heart rate and the oxygen supply to the heart muscle.
Pain and cardiac chest pains are due to atherosclerosis (leading to narrowing of the arterial arterial arteries), or caused by coronary spasms that intermittently restrict the arteries. In severe, persistent and non-nervous cases, permanent heartbeat is referred to as angina or patchy angina.
The heartbeat is the most common cause of non-cardiac causes and is transient and may have many causes, including stress, anxiety, some infections, muscle or bone problems, lung tumors, chest trauma, abdominal pain and gastric reflux. Some heartbeat heart attacks may require emergency care.
What are the signs and symptoms of heartbeat ?
Symptoms of chest pain include pressure, tightness or burning, sometimes with suffocation or shortness of breath. This discomfort is often sharp to slightly mild, usually in the upper abdomen, back, neck, jaw, left hand or shoulder. Sometimes the cause of heartburn can be due to things like:
– Exposure to cold weather
– Emotional stress
The heart beats are transiently repeated for a few seconds and sometimes several times. The severity of pain or jerking usually does not change with breathing, coughing or position. Classically, chest pain is in the left chest. However, it may also occur in the center or right chest. Non-cardiac chest pain may have many symptoms
However, non-cardiac chest pain may change with breathing, coughing, or position. Regardless of this, in addition to heartbeat, chest pain is not normal and should be diagnosed by a cardiologist, as this could be a serious health hazard.
A variety of things include nausea and vomiting, dizziness, pain or discomfort in one or both hands. Pregnant women may experience pain or heartbeat by heartburn, stomach upset, pressure (child pressure on diaphragm / ribs), chest spread and stress.
In children and adolescents, chest wall pain is the most common cause of chest pain. In this age group, there is rarely a heart problem, but it can occur with conditions like Marfan syndrome or tearing of aorta.
What are the conditions associated with heartbeat ?
Conditions associated with pain and sudden cardiac arrest are very high. Below is a list of conditions that may lead to chest pain and heart rhythm. This list does not include any conditions, but the purpose is to describe some of the major conditions associated with pain and heartbeat (both heart and non-heart):
GERD, Hyalatinis hernia, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, hyperthyroidism, lupus, mitral valve protuberance, marfan syndrome, pericarditis, anxiety, stress, aortic aneurysm, aortic fracture, aortic stenosis, keratomyopathy, colitisitis, cocaine use, diabetes, esophageal spasm, gastritis, GERD, Pleural, Pneumothorax, Pathogamy, Pulmonary embolism, Ruplex, Scleroderma
Diagnosis of chest pain
The cause of pain and throbbing in the area of the heart or chest is diagnosed by examining the medical records and physical examination. The health care specialist first detects heart and non-cardiac symptoms, and sometimes it takes place with a history of disease. It is important to investigate the causes of pulp and heart pain, because heart-related chest pain may require ongoing intervention and treatment.
During the physical examination, the medical staff may have an electrocardiogram (EKG) and a chest X-ray. A high blood level of troponin can also damage the muscle of the heart. Other blood tests such as full blood count (CBC) and basic metabolic profiles are helpful in evaluating the emergency.
In more complex conditions, tests such as exercise stress testing, stress echocardiography, myocardial perfusion scan, or CT angiography can be used. Other tests and methods that may be used include Holter monitoring and coronary angiography.
Coronary artery disease is diagnosed with coronary angiography that is used to detect atherosclerosis. However, in general, heartbeat can not be due to an acute heart failure or heart failure in most cases. In most cases, heartbeats can be shot. Can be caused by stress or anxiety. However, if these conditions persist, it should be better for people with chest pain who do not know if chest pain is a heart problem, and should be evaluated immediately in the emergency department.
