Are the above symptoms critical to worry?

At this stage what are the medicines and precautions to be taken? What more tests need to be done?

I went unconcious for few minutes 2 days back, is it as serious thing to taken care of, what care should be taken?

Heart Disease and Heart Attack Answer A4206
List of other diseases, conditions, or injuries and their treatment: In 2004 there was a mild heart attack.





Current medical status: Base line ECG shows ST-T changes, 24 hours Holter monotoining shows supraventicular ectopics with short runs. The maximum average nd minimum heart rate were recorded 102 BPM, 77 BPM and 43 BPN respectively. No AV block noted. Patient had few episodes of chest pain , dizziness and SOB during the test








Your symptoms may not be critical but obviously show that your heart is damaged. That syncope you had should be taken very seriously in people with heart damage. I think you need a coronary stress-test and, later, coronarography, if necessary, to check the coronary arteries’ blood passage.








The results from the heart’s ultrasound scan were not provided. You also told me nothing about your blood pressure, lipid status (cholesterol and triglycerides) and blood glucose level. You might consider stop smoking and start taking Aspirin 100 mg every day.








You may want to consult a cardiologist about your condition.
