My stepfather is a heart patient and for the last 24 hours has been experiencing lower back pain, stomach pain and nausea. Could these symptoms be related to his heart, and if not, what could his problem be?
Hi Anthony Phillips,
Online sites are wonderful resources for getting information to help manage your care, but they should not be used instead of a doctor's sound advice and treatment. If you believe these symptoms might be cardiac related, then the best thing to do is get your step father in to see his doctor.
Being that your step father is a heart patient, you might want to check out the information on the heart site at MyHeartCentral.com. There you can check the symptoms database to see if your step father is experiencing any heart related symptoms.
I hope this helps. Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!
