Seeking Treatment for Chest Pain

Seeking Treatment for Chest Pain


– Chest pain can be alarming and the causes can be wide ranging. Doctor Yomiyyu Gammada with Coliseum Northside
Hospital talks about when you should seek treatment
in the emergency room. – The classic symptoms
for heart attack are this heavy pressure sensation
that is sudden onset. It radiates to the jaw and the left arm. We do see those but maybe
about 50% of the time. The other 50% are coming
with vague symptoms such as just burning sensation or just shortness of breath sometimes and when we do the workups
it actually turns out to be a heart attack. If the pain is persistent or if it’s sudden in onset, come to the emergency department. – To learn more or find a physician, call CONSULT-A-NURSE at 478 746 4646 or visit coliseumhealthsystem.com. I’m Beverly Herbert,
