Thousands of cases of myocardial infarction are recorded annually in the world, and many have learned how to provide the necessary help to patients, but they do not always know the symptoms of myocardial infarction.
And Dr. Vasily Tereshchenko, a specialist in cardiovascular medicine and surgery, points out in a television interview that the symptoms of a heart attack are often discomfort or pain in the heart area and burning in the chest area. But there are other, less common symptoms.
He adds, among these symptoms, numbness and burning in the hands, angina pectoris, and pain in the shoulder area, which usually appear together. It may be accompanied by a fear of death, which is a syndrome that appears when you feel panic. The person also feels anxiety that does not exist in reality.
“These symptoms may indicate that the problem is in the posterior wall of the left ventricle,” he says. “This is a symptom of ischemia.”
He adds, and when pain is felt in the left side of the neck and moves to the lower jaw, without a mechanical cause (bruises or a blow), a cardiologist should be consulted. Which after conducting the necessary examination and ECG determines the cause and what to do next.
