The Sensation In The Chest When Surprised Can It Harm The Heart?
I drive often when I turn to not know the rules, then I am shocked and my heart looks like it feels like going off. If it’s often so dangerous for my heart, lately my heart and lungs are often aching and aching, why is that?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the sensation that you feel in your chest when you are surprised is a momentary change in heart rate. If this only happens when you are shocked, then the condition does not harm your heart at all. Heart rate can indeed change throughout the day, can be faster or slower, depending also on your emotional activity and condition. This does not indicate abnormalities in the heart and will not cause certain effects that are harmful to the heart. When someone is shocked (for example in your case, you are surprised to realize that there is a danger that can occur - a car that turns carelessly and can cause an accident), the body releases a hormone called the hormone adrenaline / epinephrine. This hormone will cause your concentration and focus to increase, your reflexes become faster, increase your strength, and also cause physiological changes such as increased blood pressure, heart rate, breathing. This effect only occurs temporarily as long as this hormone rises, and everything will return to normal after hormone levels decrease again.
Regarding the heart and lungs that often experience aches and aches, you should clarify the symptoms as what you experience, whether you feel pain in your chest, palpitations, pain when breathing, or other symptoms. Pain is an uncomfortable sensation or can also be used to describe pain in the bones, while aching is an uncomfortable sensation that comes from skeletal muscles. Both are not appropriate to describe the disorders of the lung or heart. If you often feel a sensation of discomfort in your chest, you should do an examination to the doctor of internal medicine in order to further explore your symptoms, physical examination, and investigations to determine the cause.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
