Are your symptoms indicative of a heart problem?

The issue with diagnosing heart conditions is that they tend to share symptoms with other, more benign problems. This can lead to misdiagnosis. Here at Garland, Samuel & Loeb, we aim to help prepare you for this possibility.

Medical misdiagnoses are more common for some ailments than others. Heart issues tend to be high on that list because many of the signs of a more serious problem are shared with issues like stress, muscular fatigue or strain, and other issues that are fairly easily remedied. Shared symptoms can include:

  •          Jaw tightness
  •          Shoulder pain
  •          Constricted feeling in the chest

The less benign conditions these can point to include things like blocked arteries, blood clotting disorders or muscular issues that can eventually cause heart attacks or strokes. However, even cardiovascular specialists may mix these issues up at times, making for a dangerous situation in which a potentially life-threatening ailment can go undetected for weeks, months or even years without being properly addressed or treated.

This means that heart attacks or strokes falling under this category can be considered an issue of medical malpractice, specifically in regard to wrongful diagnosis. By determining a problem to be benign like muscular soreness when it is actually a heart attack threat, you have been left open to severe and preventable damage.

As a victim of a heart attack, stroke, or other cardiovascular problem that could have been avoided, you may wish to explore your options. To start learning more about pursuing a malpractice case for the misdiagnosis of your heart ailment, please visit our website.
