What if a heart attack goes undiagnosed?

Washington residents like you trust that you'll be getting a correct diagnosis when you go into the emergency room for unexplained pain. However, that may not always be the case. Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan, attorneys at law, are here to walk you through what to do if your heart attack went undiagnosed.

Heart attacks are actually a little harder to diagnose than people may think. Not only are the symptoms different than what you would expect from what the television tells you, but they can also change depending on who is experiencing them. For example, men typically feel pain in their arms or chest. Women, on the other hand, may experience chest pain as well as back or jaw pain. Women are also more likely to experience other symptoms like shortness of breath or nausea.

Because not all heart attacks are extremely severe, it's possible to misinterpret the signs of a less severe attack as something else entirely. Common misdiagnoses can include pulled muscles, angina, heart burn, period pains, or anxiety. If a doctor does not thoroughly check the heart despite strange pains or weaknesses you may be experiencing, it's completely possible for them to miss that you're having a heart attack.

If you have suffered from extensive injury because you had a heart attack that was misdiagnosed and you were left untreated, please visit our web page on medical misdiagnoses. You can look into possible compensation options which may help to make up for the financial losses that your medical issues have incurred.
