ten kardialgiya and children.

cardialgia are the following types, depending on the causes of the disease: functional kardialgiya, psychogenic kardialgiya, Vertebrogenic kardialgiya, kardialgiya vegetative crisis.

reasons cardialgia

cardialgia The reasons include disease of the heart muscle.Inflammation of the heart muscle - myocarditis, which occurs as a complication of the common cold, flu.

defeat of the inner and outer lining of the heart (endocarditis, pericarditis) is also often leads to the development of the disease.At the same time the pain increases in certain postures (bending forward, lying on your left side).In these cases, the pain associated with the friction shells together.In this first acute pain, then it accumulated liquid, which reduces the sharpness of pain, after treatment of liquid absorbed for a short time back pain, and then passes.

Scoliosis leads to a shift of the heart, often causing cardialgia.Often thickened rib cartilage (Tietze's syndrome), which causes the disease is usually in patients over 40 years.If the cause of the pain - irritation of spinal nerve roots, it Vertebrogenic kardialgiya.

Diseases of the digestive tract irritate nerve endings, causing cardialgia.This hiatal hernia, cholecystitis, inflammatory diseases and ulcers of the esophagus.The high standing of the diaphragm due to bloating, obesity provokes pain after eating, especially if the patient lies down (Remhelda syndrome).It is found that the transverse colon is over the liver - Kilayditi syndrome, which causes severe pain in the chest.In diseases of the lung and pleura on the left begins kardialgiya.Another reason - a cardiopsychoneurosis, then there is an imbalance of the nervous system.

If psychogenic kardialgiya, the pain often observed in the apex of the heart, the pain of it can be moved.Cardialgia vegetative crisis characterized by a very long crushing pain or aching, Validol and Nitroglycerin in this case makes it easy to state.This increases blood pressure, so can be confused cardialgia autonomic crisis with hypertensive crisis.Patients noted lethargy, weakness, anxiety, tremor appears in the body may start shortness of breath, a feeling of shortness of breath, heartbeat quickens.

Simpatalgicheskaya kardialgiya characterized by severe burning pain in the heart and chest.At the same time, patients complain of severe pain of the skin.When cardialgia associated with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, but the pain in the heart of the patient concerned about nausea or vomiting, a sense of gravity to the left under the ribs, swollen belly, there is heartburn, a sour taste in the mouth, belching.

When cardialgia associated with pneumonia and pleurisy, say high fever, weakness, malaise, pallor, shortness of breath, cough (at first dry, then wet) on the one hand there is stiffness of the thorax.

patient conduct blood and urine tests to identify the process of inflammation, and immunological and biochemical analysis of blood hormone levels.Spend ECG - electrocardiographic examination of the heart, that shows heart rhythm abnormalities, determined overload.When echocardiography determined by the size of the heart cavities, damage the valve if there is fluid in the pericardium.Make a chest X-ray that allows to see the presence of the tumor location and size of the heart, lung, ribs.

Once installed cardialgia reason, appoint additional investigation by specialists.It is important to distinguish the diagnosis cardialgia from other diseases of the heart muscle and blood vessels.Unlike the false angina, myocardial infarction causes a much more severe and prolonged pain.An electrocardiogram will be visible characteristic features: Q wave indicates the presence of necrosis.To detect coronary heart disease use ECG monitoring, radionuclide scintigraphy, stress echocardiography and ECG tests to the load.Just CHD differentiate typical pains, though, as in cardialgia intermittent pain are variable.

used for differential diagnosis tests for nitroglycerin.Angina pain goes away after 2-3 minutes after taking nitroglycerin under the tongue, and if false angina pain with nitroglycerin is not connected.At diagnosis, cardialgia features the so-called "sense of the heart" in patients.Pulmonary embolism is distinguished from simple cardialgia pain is not associated with physical activity, the presence of dyspnea, hemoptysis, the characteristic ECG.
