Is burping a heart attack symptom?


Answer by  JacHarper (31)

Burping should not be used as a symptom to diagnose a heart attack. There are many more specific and apparent symptoms that would be better used as a reference, such as numbness of the left arm and debilitating chest pain.

Burping is a reaction of the digestive system. It means you took on too much air when swallowing your food. Burping is not a sympton of a heart attack. If this re-occurs see your doctor for a full check-up. This could be a sign of something else that has to do with your disestive tract or esphogis.

No burping has nothing to do with a heart attack. Most of the time you will feel chest pain or tightness in your chest. Also, you might have numbness in one of your arms. Another sign is that you are feeling like you need to faint and your body temperature is low.

Frequent burping may be a symptom of angina. You should go for an confirmatory test like Tread mill stress tests, Electocardiogram and a holter monitor can be taken as soon as possible.

I had burping for two weeks and it WAS a symptom of heart attack although rare. I also had two normal EKG's with a 99% blockage in my LAD (main heart vein). They only found it because on the third enzyme test my enzymes were slightly elevated. Get it checked.
