Zyrtec Chest Discomfort Causes and Reviews


Each year almost 800,000 Americans have a heart attack. A heart attack happens when blood flow to the heart suddenly becomes blocked. Without the blood coming in, the heart can't get oxygen. If not treated quickly, the heart muscle begins to die. But if you do get quick treatment, you may be able to prevent or limit damage to the heart muscle. That's why it's important to know the symptoms of a heart attack and call 911 if you or someone else is having them. You should call, even if you are not sure that it is a heart attack.

The most common symptoms in men and women are

  • Chest discomfort. It is often in center or left side of the chest. It usually lasts more than a few minutes. It may go away and come back. It can feel like pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain. It also can feel like heartburn or indigestion.
  • Shortness of breath. Sometimes this is your only symptom. You may get it before or during the chest discomfort. It can happen when you are resting or doing a little bit of physical activity.
  • Discomfort in the upper body. You may feel pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, shoulders, neck, jaw, or upper part of the stomach.

You may also have other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and lightheadedness. You may break out in a cold sweat. Sometimes women will have different symptoms then men. For example, they are more likely to feel tired for no reason.

The most common cause of heart attacks is coronary artery disease (CAD). With CAD, there is a buildup of cholesterol and other material, called plaque, on their inner walls or the arteries. This is atherosclerosis. It can build up for years. Eventually an area of plaque can rupture (break open). A blood clot can form around the plaque and block the artery.

A less common cause of heart attack is a severe spasm (tightening) of a coronary artery. The spasm cuts off blood flow through the artery.

At the hospital, health care providers make a diagnosis based on your symptoms, blood tests, and different heart health tests. Treatments may include medicines and medical procedures such as coronary angioplasty. After a heart attack, cardiac rehabilitation and lifestyle changes can help you recover.

Zyrtec Chest Discomfort Reviews

Fri, 21 May 2010

I took one dose and experienced a bout of pancreatitis. I suffer from chronic pancreatitis and know what most of my "triggers" are.....never thought a simple allergy medication would cause such a problem, I think I would rather suffer allergies than risk pancreatitis.

Sat, 05 Nov 2011

Started on Zyrtec on the suggestion of my dermatologist for treatment of hives. Rash that resulted from the Zyrtec a MILLION times worse than the original hives. Had the same reaction to Seldane.

Tue, 09 Feb 2010

I have Type 2 Diabetes, when taking my level in the morning I noticed my level was elevated, and the only thing I had ingested was a Zyrtec pill about 2 hours prior? Could the pill be the cause?

Wed, 03 Dec 2008
Does Zyrtec inrease blood sugar levels? I have been taking 10m a day for 10 days and have notices symptoms of high blood sugar, when tested it was in the high 100's. Has anyone heard of this side effect?
Sat, 13 Aug 2011
I have had and am having a bad reaction to Zyrtec. My eyes are inflamed and my throat is sore. Lips are swollen. My tongue is white. I will be forced to go to the Emergency at the hospital.
Sun, 28 Mar 2010
I took Zyrtec for a week and while it does solve my allergy issues, it makes me a raving lunatic. Severe aggression, mood swings, and nightmares are the norm for me n this medicine. I would not recommend it if you are taking any anti anxiety or anti depressants.
