I was just dx with a moderate cardiac muscle bridge during a workup done because i had been experiencing chest pain. The doc said it's nothing to really be concerned about. But how do i differentiate between the pain i occasionally have from that condition and a pain associated with a heart attack?
You wouldn't be able to differentiate the source when it happens, but with a heart attack there would be heart muscle damage. Heart muscle damage would/could cause impaired left ventricle functionality and heart failure. Heart failure symptoms would be shortness of breath, fatique, fast heart rate, respiratory edema and sometimes peripheral edema as well, etc.
