Wow! This is eerie to suddenly come upon this thread. Had a heart attack at 45 in Jan '08, with 100% blockage of
the LAD. They stented it.
I had a rod like pain about the size of
a 4" pencil to the left of
my sternum - my cardiologist said it was nothing extraordinary.
Had a lot of
travel and work stress in Sep/Oct and I started getting intermittent pain traveling up the neck to the left side of
my jaw. The pain also radiated to my left arm pit.
