Heart Attack Misdiagnosis

Delayed Diagnosis for Heart Attacks Attorneys in Chicago

Unfortunately, heart attacks are one of the medical conditions that are very often misdiagnosed.  When heart attacks are misdiagnosed, there can be incredibly serious consequences, including death.  The symptoms of a heart attack can be very similar to the symptoms of other medical conditions, which is why it is often not diagnosed correctly.  The common symptoms of a heart attack are:

  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Feelings of overwhelming anxiety
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Pain in your back, neck or arms
  • Pain or tightness in the chest area

These symptoms that heart attack patients experience can mimic the symptoms of other medical conditions, including:

  • Angina
  • Heartburn
  • Pancreatitis
  • Panic attacks
  • Pneumonia

In order to properly diagnose a heart attack, doctors will usually order a series of tests, including an electrocardiogram (EKG), MRI of the heart, chest X-ray and a cardiac catheterization.  If you or a loved one suffered further injury or death because of a heart attack that was not diagnosed, RB Law’s medical malpractice attorneys are here to help you get the compensation that you deserve.
