A cardiologist explained the types of pain and symptoms that patients may experience during a myocardial infarction.

According to the specialist, this heart attack is not always accompanied by pain and in 30% of cases it may not give any sensation in the chest.

A heart attack is when part of your heart doesn’t get enough blood. This usually happens because an artery that supplies blood to the heart is blocked.

Common heart attack symptoms can include pain or discomfort in the upper body, such as the jaw, neck, arms, shoulders or back, teeth, abdomen, ear or lower back, says Cardiologist Mistyann-Blue Miller, MD.

As intricate as our body’s systems are, they are very adept at giving signals when there is something wrong. When there is a problem with the heart, it triggers nerves in that area, but you sometimes feel pain elsewhere.

reports the Cleveland Clinic.

Pain in the jaw, back or arms may signal a heart condition, especially if the origin is hard to pinpoint (for example there is no specific muscle or joint that aches). Also, if the discomfort begins or worsens when you are exerting yourself, and then stops when you quit exercising, you should get it checked out.

According to another expert consulted by Revyuh, chest pain is not always associated with a possible heart attack but can be caused by diseases of the spine, esophagus, aorta, pleura, and lungs. 

That is why, in such cases, experts advised to consult a doctor to determine the exact cause of the discomfort.

“If we talk specifically about myocardial infarction, there are a number of distinctive signs that must also be known. In myocardial infarction, chest pain can be accompanied by shortness of breath, cold sweats, sometimes a feeling of fear of death, and even a possible loss of consciousness,” as explained by the cardiologist.

To reduce the risk of heart attack, doctors recommended adopting a healthy lifestyle, quitting smoking, controlling blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels, and undergoing preventive examinations.
