gas

does a heart attact act like gas? I have lots of gas most all the time. I get pains in my chest sometimes on my left side. And sometimes right, but the left makes my think im having a heart attack. So, many people the last few days have died of sudden heart attacts. I've not got high blood presure or colestral, a really healthy man

Heart attack symptoms vary so much. There are even "silent" heart attacks. Most often people refer to heart pain as pressure. Most of the time when I have gas, it feels sharp and comes and goes. If you're really concerned, talk it over with your doctor. You're at that age (don't you love it when they say that?) that a cardiac workup might be good. A decent EKG and perhaps a stress test. Good job keeping the BP and cholesterol down. That's hard to do.

I have the same problem. I get this all the time, it will even make my arm hurt, too! I freak out completely when this happens, but I don't have any other symptoms of a heart attack(sweating, dizziness, etc.). I think you should talk with your doctor about this, I asked mine and all he said was I was to young to have a heart attack (i'm 23). Do you ever get pain in your back at the same time, I do and was just wondering?

to Kim, no i don't get any pain in my back, my first time i had chest pains i went to em room, the doc said i wouldn't die of a HA, maybe something else but not HA. Still a hard thing to think of, when you get a sharp pain in the chest. Now to Ireno, this my sound silly but my doctor will probably send my to a shrink if i tell him about this. He acually told my one time if i didn't start to belive him he would send me to one that would. lol

Well, poo. If the doctor has checked your heart thoroughly and said everything looks good, then fine and dandy. Perhaps it is gas or some kind of muscle spasm in there. But according to your profile, you've over 40 and that's the magic time to get all these extras checked. If the doc is basing solely on your cholesterol numbers, I'm not impressed.

Do you experience pain when you exert yourself (stairs, lifting, rushing around)? If not, that's a good thing. Even if your doctor is convinced your heart is fine, it would still be nice to know exactly what's causing the pains and how to manage them.

I see you're from Texas. Very tempting places there - Whattaburger being one of my favorites. Can't think of the BBQ place right now. They catered my son's wedding. Anyway, hope you get some relief soon.

Well, I work at our ranch and do a lot of physical work, I sweat a lot and drink lots of water. I never really have pains as i discribed until i eat or the day after some really big meals. I dislike the pain in the heart area, don't understand how pain of gas could be there is my main concern. I would think it would be in my stomock area and not in my chest. Mybe im just paranoid I don't know but thats why im asking

It's quite normal to ask about pains in the chest. Everyone wonders. Sounds like you are active and doing quite well. Since the pain seemed to be connected to meals most of the time, it's probably related to your stomach. Perhaps a bit of acid reflux. That can mimic heart pain. Certainly, if the pain changes or gets worse, don't hesitate to call your doctor. Take care.  (I finally remembered the name of the BBQ place - Bill Miller's)

Yes great BBQ, that is what i ate on Sat, someone said that there is a intestine around the spine that gets gas caught in it sometimes. That is cool, but i just don't understand how a pain in the chest under your nipple area can be from gas. But hey i'll confess im not a guienes. Its not as bad today at all, even had a good night sleep. I really would like to tell the difrence tho.
