While some chest pains are simply a sign of heart burn, they can also be a sign of a more serious and even potentially fatal heart problem. In some cases, chest pain can be the earliest sign of an impending heart attack. Getting medical attention as quickly as possible is essential to reducing your risks of more serious complications.
Heading to the emergency room is not an option for many people. The bill is outrageously expensive, and that’s only after waiting for half a day in the lobby. At Urgent 9 Urgent Care Center, you can see a doctor in less time and won’t have to worry about sticker shock causing you fresh chest pains after you leave.
Our highly trained doctors in Glendale CA will evaluate you to better understand why you are experiencing chest pains and to make recommendations for treatment or for follow-up care. Some diagnostic services that we offer at Urgent 9 include and EKG, chest x-ray and blood work. The information from these tests can provide key insights into why you are experiencing chest pains and whether or not they are indicative of a larger problem, such as a blocked artery or a heart abnormality.
Chest pains may not be the only symptom you are experiencing. Other symptoms of heart or lung problems can include shortness of breath, heart palpitations (skipping beats) and syncope (passing out). These symptoms can be experienced together or separately, and that information is helpful in determining a diagnosis.
