is it possible to be having a heart attack and vitals be ok?
Hi I was just wondering if you can be having a heart attack and your heart rate and bloodpressure be normal or close to normal range? A stupid question I know. But I have been having pain in left side of my chest, arm and neck. And when I check my vital signs they don't seem to be too alarming.
Well I have been recently diagnosed w/ neurocardiogenic syncope, then sinustacharrythmia, then sinusbradyarrythmia. When I have the pains in my chest my vision gets kinda blurry. But it's just a sonstant pain on the left side of my chest, left arm and goes up the left side of my neck. And usually pvc's with or following the pain.
no the pain doesn't cause me to panis, I try to just relax and take deep breaths in thru my nose and out of my mouth in hopes that they will go away. I am too scared to panic if makes since. Like I am scared if I panic that it would make the pains worse.
it's not just the chest pains though. I woke up on Dec.2, was goin about my daily routine and fainted. All day that day my HR just kept shooting up. They diagnosed me w/ NeuroCardiogenic Syncope. 4Days later I was back in the ER w/ a HR of 161. Also w/ PVC's. Since then I have went ot the ER got there with sinustacharrythmia and left three hours later w/ sinusBradyArrythmia w/ PVC's. Every Doc I go to says somethin different. All I know is that I defanitly have a sinus arrythmia. I defanitly have PVC's. And now I have unexplained chest/arm/neck pains. Only on left side. Oh and my blood pressure is always either too high or too low.
no it's not high all the time. It will just shoot up out of nowhere. It stays low between30-55 usually. Then it will just spike up really quickly. I am on metropolol and xanax. I have has ekg's, blood work and stress test done. Blood work and stress test normal. And EKG's always show sinus arrythmia.
