Typical Chest Pain Types

Written by Mystic on Thursday, January 24, 2008

Oh, My God! It's a chest pain!

Relax! It could be just heartburn. It is usually associated with gastritis. Those fat-laden spicy foods, endless cups of coffee, popping aspirin on the slightest headache or those late night booze parties that you've attending lately could be causing that burning sensation up your esophagus. To relieve this cumbersome chest pain, stay clear of the triggers.

You're experiencing short, unpredictable attacks of intense fear, accompanied by chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, dizziness and sweating. You're sure that you've got a heart attack. Hey! It could be nothing but just a panic attack. Yes, panic disorder is often confused for a heart attack because of its similar symptoms. If you suspect that you're its victim, talk to your doctor. After giving you a physical examination, he might ask you to see a psychiatrist.

However, pay special heed to chest pain if you're at risk for developing a heart disease. The risk factors include a family history of heart attack, increasing age, obesity, smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a sedentary life style.

Want to know the warning signals of a heart attack? These include uncomfortable pressure, squeezing and pain in the chest: pain spreading from the chest to the shoulders, arms and neck, lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea and shortness of breath. See a doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.
