Heartburn vs Heart Attack: DISCOVER the Differences

Contrary to its name, heartburn is not related to problems of the heart. The symptoms of heartburn are in the vicinity of the heart and so many people worry that it is a heart attack. Although not to be taken lightly heartburn is not life threatening, but heart attacks are and should be treated as an emergency. Symptoms like chest pain, breathing problems, pressure radiating from the chest area, or nausea are all associated with heart attacks as well as heartburn. In such cases it is always better to be safe than sorry and get a doctor to diagnose.

Heartburn or heart attack symptoms can be easily confused because both can cause pain in the middle of the chest. Other heartburn symptoms may include a sensation of food or liquid coming up into the throat or mouth (regurgitation), especially when bending over or lying down and a bitter or acid taste in the mouth.

However, one of the main differences between heartburn and heart attack symptoms is that with heart attack, a person may also have nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, sweating, lightheadedness weakness and a sense of impending doom.

There are ways to tell the differences of heartburn vs. heart attack:

1. Heartburn is usually that burning pain from the stomach up the esophagus. It is often accompanied by a sour or bitter taste in the mouth. The pain of heart attack is constant and can be felt as discomfort or a crushing sensation that lasts for more than a few minutes and increases when you move around.

2.There are several other symptoms of a heart attack like nausea, dizziness, sweating, weakness, shortness of breath, anxiety, pain that spreads up into the jaw, shoulder, or down the arm. There may be a feeling of numbness and tingling in the shoulders and arms. The heartbeat becomes irregular or rapid.

3.The skin is pale or has a pallid look and may be cold and/or sweaty.

4. When considering heart attack vs. heartburn, also consider the timing. Though heart attacks can come on at any time, they are often triggered by exercise. Heartburn often flares up after a meal, typically 30 to 60 minutes later. Also, the pain is worse while lying down, bending forward, or straining, and better when standing up, swallowing saliva or water.

5. Taking antacids will not relieve the chest pain of a heart attack. Indigestion pain dissipates while that of a heart attack persists.

6.If there is a family or medical history of heart disease, the symptoms could likely be a heart attack.

It is always prudent and safe to assume the worst and hope for the best.
