Hi everyone, Dr Cris here bringing you The Ask Dr Cris show. Today’s question comes from Angela and it is bit more of a serious topic it is one I take extremely seriously in my clinical practice. She is asking me whether her chest pain could be related to her heart.
I always say if in doubt if you are getting chest pain you need to see a Doctor. There is no question asked, it could be something else, but if it is heart related you don’t want to miss it. There are other things that obviously cause chest pain from anxiety, to indigestion, but you don’t want to assume. A lot of women neglect their chest pain because they feel that it is another cause, it can’t be there heart because we always hear that men are having heart troubles and not women. It is not the case. Heart attacks kill more women than anything else that kills women. So it is still our number one killer as it is with men. So don’t just assume if you are having chest pain please go and see someone about it, and it can be very quickly eliminated, as related to your heart. Thank you for asking Angela, and please go and see a doctor about that one.
Thank you for asking the question and if you’ve got any other questions please leave them below. I hope that you are loving The Ask Dr Chris Show. If you’d like to see more of the Ask Dr Cris Show please press subscribe.
