Heart Disease Misdiagnosis

A heart attack happens when one of the arteries supplying blood to the heart becomes slowly narrowed or suddenly blocked. 

Shortness of breath, chest and neck pain and sweating are a few of the signs and symptoms of a threatening heart attack. 

The death of Carrie Fischer in 2016 from undiagnosed heart disease should have been a wakeup call for the medical community. Women and men both have signs and symptoms of heart disease which must be recognized by doctors.

If a heart attack is diagnosed quickly, the blockage can be cleared with little to no permanent damage. If misdiagnosed by a physician, however, the results can be catastrophic, and often fatal.

Medical professionals often misdiagnose heart disease as something else, including:

  • Acid reflux or heartburn
  • gastritis
  • Angina (chest pain)
  • Bronchitis
  • Esophagitis
  • Gallstones
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Pneumonia

If you or a loved one has suffered a devastating injury or death from misdiagnosed heart disease, Lloyd Law Group can help you.
