Where exactly in the jaw, he feels the discomfort?
Any pain on pressing the jaw?
The discomfort he felt in chest was in midline of chest in straight line or to the right or left side of chest?
Hi, Thank you so much for your time.
Even if this is bad news coming, please be honest. I just had a long talk with my dad and will try and answer your questions.
He told me today that his gut discomfort that ran up his chest has not come about for a few days. Now it's mainly in his jaw, it can come any time, but more with exertion. He says the jaw discomfort starts sort of
where you swallow (adams apple) to underneath the jaw in the meaty part. He says it feels sort of like it gets big. He mentions sometimes he also has a little tingling in his tongue. He also has had what feels like a quivering botXXXXX XXXXXp, It's not actually quivering but felt like it.
The chest symptoms he had for a while and ended a few days ago were in the center in a straight line. Not to right or left. Not with pressure. just sort of burning.
No pain pressing the jaw.
He says the Nitro seems to help after a couple minuets.
He told me he feels like he could run to the road, (which is a couple hundred feet.) He feels good, other than getting this jaw symptom.
Don't worry he will not run to the road, he is taking utmost precaution right now.
He has had no arm pain, no back pain, (ever) and for a few days now, no chest or gut discomfort. Just jaw. No shortness of breath at all, ever.
Remember, his blood pressure had gone down during stress test, that immediately concerned the doctor.
He has been a health conscious person all his life. Vitamins, cholesterol a little high side of normal, very conscious of what he eats.
If this is heart related, it must be genetic. Because he has done things right. They had done EKG at stress test, they want to compare that to stress test a 4 or 5 days earlier, have not heard about that. But
last Sunday night, blood, Xray, and Ekg were normal. I do not know what it showed Thursday.
