Symptoms of Clogged Arteries - Silent Signs You Might Have Coronary Artery Disease

symptoms of clogged arteries

Hi I'm dr. Margaret Collins Hill with consults and hypertension in Wilmington North Carolina the question this evening is about the symptoms of heart blockage what I think we're getting

at here is the symptoms of heart attack heart attack is what happens when blood flow to the

heart is interrupted when the heart does not get enough blood flow it screams for oxygen and

that leads to chest pain chest pain can vary in the way it feels most people describe it as a

pressure like an elephant sitting on the chest or a vise grip around the chest others describe it

as heartburn or a toothache or even a burning in general you can be fairly certain that you're

 not having heart attack pain if it's sharp stabbing needle like and if it doesn't change when

you rest the reason that chest pain occurs when you are walking is that the heart needs more

 blood flow the heart takes every bit of oxygen out of the blood that flows through it and

when the heart rate increases when you exercise is when you exercise you need more when the

vessels are narrowed from atherosclerosis the blood flow can't increase enough to meet the

demands of the heart muscle and that's when chest pain happens if you are having chest pain

that occurs when you're walking or climbing stairs or running and especially if it's

 accompanied by any pain in the jaw the neck the arm or shortness of breath nausea sweating

 or becoming pale you definitely should get in touch with your doctor and seeing whether this

 pain might be coming from your heart fortunately not all chest pain is from the heart there

are a number of people who have quite intense pain from reflux or from spasms of the

esophagus or even from the injuries to the chest wall so if you think you're having symptoms of heart blockage see your doctor. Next Cardiac Diet - How to Improve Heart Health
