Does your heart hurt? Treatment is necessary!
What is dangerous pain in the heart?
Type of vegetative-vascular dystonia, occurring with pain in the heart, referred to as cardiac. The nature of such pain is different: from aching, bursting to sharp, piercing and burning. Often, the patient feels interruptions in the work of the heart, increased pulse and breathing, headache, weakness. Heart pain can appear both during physical exertion, and at rest and even in sleep, causing a person to wake up. The cardiac type of dystonia causes anxiety, panic, and depression in the patient. Suffer from general well-being. Full life and professional activities become impossible.
In vegetative-vascular dystonia, the prognosis for life is favorable: even over the years of the disease, there is no increase in heart areas, development of heart failure, heart attacks and strokes, life-threatening rhythm and conduction disturbances. But this is true only for vegetative-vascular dystonia. Quite often there are cases of an unserious attitude to heart pain, which can be a manifestation of completely different diseases, leading to consequences that are dangerous for life and health.
Correct diagnosis is half the success.
Heart pain of any nature and at any age is a must for a visit to the doctor. Only a specialist can correctly assess the situation and prescribe the necessary examination and treatment regimen. Electrocardiography is one of the types of routine diagnosis of cardiac pathology. It can be used to determine rhythm and conduction disturbances, to determine whether the patient has ischemia (impoverishment of the blood flow in the heart muscle) or not. However, electrocardiography alone is not enough for a complete diagnosis. Be sure to use an ultrasound of the heart (echocardiography), which gives an idea of the organic and functional changes in the heart: the state and function of valves, chambers, large vessels, the presence or absence of pathological foci, abnormal development of the heart and adjacent vessels. Often, for diagnostic purposes, samples with a load are used: drug, physical (bicycle ergometry, treadmill), respiratory, etc., if necessary, coronary angiography is performed.
These terms are used to inform users about the services that are used to diagnose heart disease (Editor’s note).

Intake of drugs The administration of drugs is prescribed to enhance the power of the heart muscle, improve its work, and restore nervous regulation. With these goals, beta-blockers, potassium preparations, hawthorn, validol, valerian, drugs that improve metabolism in the heart muscle and increase its oxygenation and thus help it work more efficiently are often used.
