Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Yes, it is.
I would feel a lot better if I had an EKG and could do an exam on you, but by themselves those symptoms are concerning.
This service really should not be used in this manner. The fact is that you have three symptoms that could be associated with angina.... chest pain that may signal heart disease or heart attack... the only way to figure out if this is your heart or not is to be seen in the ER right now.
Everything else is simply a guess
you are a 53 year old male and those things alone put you at higher risk of heart disease
the chest pain with dizziness and nausea must be assumed to be a heart problem until it is proven not to be a heart problem.
you did not upset me
it's just that
the only answer in this particular case is to tell you to see a doctor or go to the ER as soon as possible
and that is not why YOU are using the service
so it's a hard question
because to properly answer it requires labs and studies etc...
odds are this is not your heart
but when it comes to the heart it's dangerous to play the odds
THIS MAY PROVE HELPFUL FOR YOU
I don't have much info on you but even if you were to tell me that you didn't smoke and had no family history of heart disease and were the picture of health these particular symptoms would prompt me to recommend that you go to the ER
do you have any final questions for me?
