Chest pain is characterized by a dull ache, crushing or burning feeling, sharp stabbing pain, or a pain that goes through to the neck or shoulders.

When to Visit the ER for Chest Pain

If you are experiencing chest pain and considering going to our Paris or Greenville emergency rooms (ERs), it is important to be aware of the following:

  1. Urgency of the Situation: Chest pain can be a symptom of a serious medical condition such as a heart attack or other cardiac issues. If you are experiencing intense or persistent chest pain, especially if accompanied by other symptoms like shortness of breath, dizziness, or nausea, seek immediate medical attention.

  2. Emergency Contact: If possible, inform a family member or friend about your situation and ask them to accompany you to the ER. This can provide emotional support and ensure that someone is aware of your condition.

  3. Medical History: Be prepared to provide information about your medical history, current medications, and any known allergies to the ER staff. This can assist them in making timely and accurate assessments and decisions regarding your care.

  4. Diagnostic Tests: Understand that upon arrival, you may undergo various diagnostic tests such as an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), blood tests, chest X-rays, and possibly a stress test. These tests help in diagnosing the cause of your chest pain.

  5. Communication with Medical Staff: Be open and honest when communicating your symptoms to the medical staff. Provide detailed information about the onset, duration, and nature of your chest pain to help the healthcare providers make a proper diagnosis.

  6. Follow-Up Care: After receiving treatment in the ER, follow any instructions or recommendations provided by the healthcare team. This may include scheduling follow-up appointments with a primary care physician or a cardiologist for further evaluation and management of your condition.
