Symptoms & Conditions

Symptoms

Symptoms can let you know if there is an underlying problem. Below is a list of some common cardiovascular symptoms along with a brief description of them. We have also discussed our general approach to each one, however this does not substitute for medical advice from a one-on-one examination by a trained physician. If you think you have any of these symptoms, please make an appointment with a trained physician for a one-on-one appointment.

  • Chest pain or Chest Discomfort

    This is the most common symptom that we evaluate at the Lincoln Park Heart Center. Causes of chest discomfort or pain can range from mild problems like muscle strains to very serious ones including heart attacks. Therefore no symptom in your chest should be ignored. Before doing any testing, we believe that the most important thing to do is sit with you and listen to every detail of your symptoms. We pride ourselves on taking a great deal of time to do this and get to know you. If we are then concerned that the chest discomfort you are having may be from your heart, we have everything from EKGs to state-of-the-art Nuclear Cardiology stress testing available on site.

  • Shortness of Breath or Dyspnea on Exertion

    Shortness of Breath refers to the sensation that you are not getting enough air. If you have this symptom while walking or exerting yourself it is called Dyspnea on Exertion. There are various issues from both the heart and the lungs that can cause this. Our thorough physical examination combined with a Cardiac Echo or Ultrasound will help determine the cause.

  • ”Get up and Go” Got up and Left!

    Decreased energy is a problem that takes a skilled clinician to solve. Our goal is to make sure nothing serious is causing this in you, find the culprit, and get you back to feeling like yourself. Simple blood tests can often be very helpful. If you need a blood test, Dr. Gill will draw the blood himself during your visit.

  • Palpitations or Skipped Beats

    Palpitations are the sensation that you can feel your own heart beating. Sometimes, you may even feel that your heart is beating irregularly. This can in fact be the first sign that there is a structurally abnormality in your heart. A Cardiac Ultrasound, call an Echo cardiogram, can be done on site and the images will be interpreted immediately by Dr. Gill to determine if this is the case. The Lincoln Park Heart Center also has remote heart monitoring capabilities for those who need it.

  • Passing out or Syncope

    Passing out, or Syncope, is when a person briefly looses consciousness. Some people pass out for many reasons (e.g. the sight of blood), while others may faint for no particular reason. It is extremely important to determine the cause of this because there can be an underlying heart problem causing these events, especially if you have other medical problems. We will ask you for a very detailed history of all of your medical problems to best understand your risk factors prior to doing any testing.

  • Leg pain while walking or Claudication

    Cholesterol blockages in the arteries that bring blood to your legs can cause pain in the legs, typically while walking. Risk factors that lead to this are the same risk factors that can lead to blockages in the brain (stroke), heart (heart attack), or kidney arteries (renal failure). These include advanced age, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, diabetes, smoking tobacco, and increased waist circumference. We will determine if you have these blockages and then aggressively reduce your risk for any future problems. We strongly believe in prevention.

  • Conditions

    There are many types of heart conditions. Review the symptoms, diagnoses, treatments and management strategies for some of the more common heart conditions below.

  • Heart attack

    A heart attack happens when there is a sudden blockage to an artery that supplies blood to an area of your heart.

  • Coronary heart disease

    Coronary heart disease is the most common cause of death in America and the rest of the Industrialized world. It is also a major cause of disability, with many people reporting problems or needing assistance with daily activities.

  • Deep vein thrombosis

    Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot in one of the deep veins of your body, usually in your leg.

  • Atrial fibrillation

    Atrial fibrillation is one of a number of disorders commonly referred to as ‘arrhythmias’, where your heart does not beat normally.

  • Familial hyper cholesterolaemia

    Familial hyper cholesterolaemia is an inherited condition in which your body doesn’t remove enough cholesterol from the blood. This causes high total blood cholesterol levels and early onset of coronary heart disease in some families.

  • High blood pressure

    High blood pressure (also know as Hypertension) is the pressure of your blood in your arteries as the heart pumps it around your body.

  • High cholesterol

    Cholesterol is a fatty substance produced naturally by your body and found in your blood.

  • Heart failure

    Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle has become too weak to pump blood through the body as effectively as normal.

  • Palpitations

    Palpitations Heart palpitations are an awareness of your heartbeat.

  • Angina

    Angina is chest pain or discomfort caused by insufficient blood flow and oxygen to the muscle of the heart.

  • Coronary artery spasm

    Coronary artery spasm is a temporary discomfort or pain that is caused by a temporary spasm in one or more of your coronary arteries.

  • Health Tips
    Stay Active After Heart Attack Discuss with your doctor first Having a heart attack shouldn’t put an end to an active lifestyle. The American Heart Association offers these guidelines for when you resume exercise:
    • Exercise only if your doctor says it’s safe.
    • Begin each workout with a gentle warm-up and end with a cooldown.
      Monitor the intensity of your activity, making sure it’s within the recommended range.
    • Monitor your heart rate and blood pressure.
    • Be aware of warning signs that you’re pushing yourself too hard, including chest pain, light-headedness or feeling out of breath.
  • FIVE Medication-Free Strategies to help prevent heart disease.
    You can prevent heart disease by following a heart-healthy lifestyle.
    1. Don’t smoke or use tobacco: Smoking or using tobacco is one of the most significant risk factors for developing heart disease.
    2. Exercise for 30 minutes on most days of the week: Getting some regular, daily exercise can reduce your risk of fatal heart disease.
    3. Eat a heart-healthy diet: Eating a special diet called the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH: diet means eating foods that are low in fat, cholesterol and salt.) eating plan can help protect your heart.
    4. Maintain a healthy weight: As you put on weight in adulthood, your weight gain is mostly fat rather than muscle. This excess weight can lead to conditions that increase your chances of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
    5. Get regular health screenings: High blood pressure and high cholesterol can damage your heart and blood vessels. Regular screening can tell you what your numbers are and whether you need to take action.
