Frequently Asked Questions about Creatine Kinase MB in Ghaziabad

Q. Is chest pain always a symptom of heart attack?

No, having chest pain does not always mean that you are having a heart attack. Chest pain can be due to other reasons such as strain in chest muscles and lung problems. Apart from that, chest pain can also mean that your arteries are getting hardened. If pain in the chest occurs during exercise or stress, it is known as angina. The pain continues for few minutes and then stops. But, you should never ignore chest pain and must always consult a doctor as early as possible.

Q. Does rise in levels of CK MB means that my heart muscles are damaged?

The rise in levels of CK MB can also be due to damage to skeletal muscles. However, sometimes there is damage to both skeletal and heart muscles.

Q. Any additional tests are required after CK MB tests?

Yes, the doctor can advise ECG. If your CK MB levels are raised, the doctor may advise angiography, exercise stress test, cardiac CT or MRI, and Troponin T test.

Q. What steps should be taken to avoid any heart problems?
