Customer Question

My mom is experiencing some discomfort around her heart. She describes it as if a hand is sqeezing her heart and let's go. It's occurring approx every ten minutes. She has gall stones and just had an incident 2 nights ago with pain bloating belching... She got no sleep that night. Her doctor has told her that her heart is good. She is just concerned and wants to know what she can do about it. There is no numbness no tingling no shortness of breath, just the sqeezing sensation.
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Hello !

The description is classic for angina -- heart caused pain -- acute coronary syndrome is too suspect until proven otherwise ...

Normal recent tests can not rule out a onset of a heart attack...

She needs to call 911 and get to ER...

I hope that this is helpful for you
