Chest Pain

Do you get chest pains ?
Worried about heart disease?
Family history of heart problems?
There are a number of causes of chest pain...

Palpitations

Heartbeat feels abnormal ? Irregular?
Thumping heart beat – feel your heart is going to jump out of your chest…..

Short of Breath

This can be due to lung or heart problems….
or
simply being unhealthy or unfit!

High Blood Pressure

This is something that concerns health professionals but patients themselves feel well, do you need to worry ?

Dizzy or Having Black Outs

Lots of causes, some need investigating & treating others don’t but you should at least see your GP.

Family History of Heart Problems

‘You can choose your friends but you can’t choose your family…..’ & because of that we can’t choose the genes passed down to us but may be able to reduce the risk of problems.
