Do I have heart disease?? Help me!!

I'm 22 heart disease runs very strong in my family!
I just lost my cousin Ashley at age 28 from heart disease
And now I'm beginning to get symptoms of what I think
Is heart disease
I have always had heartburn I get it everyday but the last
Few weeks I have been getting more severe heartburn with
Aching burning pain down my whole left are
And the pain gets worst at my elbow... It's not really numb
Or anything and I can still move my arm but it's just really
Uncomfortable pain that last between 1-3 mins usually
My grandmother always told me that when she hada heart attack
It was like really bad heartburn along with other symptoms so
I guess that's why I'm worried
Please help me!

Re: Do I have heart disease?? Help me!!

Hi,
My husbands indigestion symptoms turned out to be the start of a heart-attack and he finished up in Hospital having two valves cleaned out (angioplasty).
He also had pain in his left arm and in his Jaw.
You should see your Dr to rule out any heart problem especially if it runs in the family. Better to be safe than sorry, Good Luck,

Solofelix.

Greetings! When that happens a visit to the emergency room or even calling 911 might be appropriate.

Re: Do I have heart disease?? Help me!!

Greetings! I am glad the initial exam was good. Since there is heartburn a person might see a cardiologist to look at the valves of the heart, a general practitioner to point a person to the right specialist or a stomach specialist in case it is that. Of course if those were negative in those areas a couple of others to try might be the pulmonologist in case it is in the lungs and the rheumatologist, in case it is bone or muscle! A big drink of water might be useful for heartburn for some people if a large meal has not been recently eaten. If a meal was recently eaten I would wait a bit and drink water a bit at a time until better. Peace, sjb
