1593682 tn?1297701082 First of all Dr. Atkins did not die of a heart attack. He slipped and fell and died of "blunt impact injury of head with epidural hematoma". As far as the diet itself is concerned, it's safe if you do it correctly. I've been on it for one month and not only am I losing weight I'm burning fat. The same components that scientist were applauding in the French Paradox system is basiclly the same. Fat is not the enemy.
Avatar f tn He experienced three spasms in which one was ruled the heart attack. Now, six years later, it happened again. One doctor said heart attack, another said it wasn't. Does anyone know anything about this? The doctor at a specialized heart hospital in the ICU said that he needs to take his medicine all of the time and keep healthy. This is very scary and I would like to know if anyone knows the facts. Is this like a heart attack? If not treated by nitro immediately, it is fatal, right?

17567 tn?1276202029 So, awhile back I started getting left arm pain, which is generally a wake up sound for a heart attack? Rather than ignore it and hope it goes away I actually did something about it... and went to a cardiologist. After a few tests he tells me my heart is fine but by cholesterol is very high (260) and puts me on lipitor. Cardiologists are very big on driving blood pressure and cholesterol down towards zero needless to say.
378425 tn?1305628294 I am really worried and tired no sleep last night, My mum was life flighted out she has had a heart attack...My emotions of late have been so much of a roller coaster ride. I came on here to write and I am just so tired I cannot seem to concentrate.
967168 tn?1477584489 maybe maybe not? I know how quirky EKG/ECG machines are so I'm really hoping this time it's a false reading. My Primary found a new murmur and I've been so sick for about 5-6 months; not feeling right, more winded than normal, major headaches, different types of chest pain than before and ALOT more fainting spells even with my ICD.
Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.
Avatar m tn I thought I had a mild heart attack after bending down to get kitty toys off floor. First felt nausea, pain in jaw. Heart thomping so bad that I had to lay down and not move. I also took aspirin.
447939 tn?1235061943 A heart attack happens when your hearts oxygen saturation drops to a certain low level. This can happen from many possible causes. Most of the time it is heart disease, clogged arteries, or possibly erratic beating of the heart which causes it. Sleep apnea also is a new major factor of heart problems, so watch out for that.
907968 tn?1292622204 I have posted a copy of this question today in the heart disease forum which I have been a member since May(?) '09. I had a double bypass in April '09. ............... looking for the benefits of Salmon/fish oil and because I love fish I have been purchasing a "family pack" of "Farm Raise Atlantic Salmon Fillets". Prier to my heart attack I'd have "a" fillet a year and even then it was deep fried in oil.

Went to rheumatologist...inflammation of the chest wall. Had a course of Prednisone and knocked it out. Have had other autoimmune symptoms since, but no recurrence of the chest pain.

Avatar m tn what is difference between Heart attack and Angina pain
Avatar n tn They are measured in the blood to differentiate between unstable angina and myocardial infarction (heart attack) in patients with chest pain. A patient who had suffered from a myocardial infarction would have an area of damaged heart muscle and so would have elevated cardiac troponin levels in the blood The following information would summarize the interesting facts for your clarity and better understanding.

Avatar f tn Last night I was doing push-ups and I did one wrong and I felt something start to hurt between my heart and my left shoulder then it spread to my back. All night I was freaking out thinking I was about to have a heart attack. Today it is better but it still kinda hurts. I told my mom but she thinks I'm just paranoid. Which I do get paranoid very very easy. I'm a little overweight but I don't have any health problems otherwise. What do you think?

Avatar n tn I am a 49 year old male. On January 23, 1999 I had a major heart attack, have had angioplasty done and am now waiting to have the Ventricular Remodelling proceedure done. I am told that I have approximately 32% of my heart left functioning. I am told that my options are either this operation or a transplant. Also I am told that this would be better than a transplant because my body would not have to face the possibility of rejection.
Avatar f tn 09, 2008. today the nurse did the hepA again feb. 02, 2009. i almost had a heart attack. she did it before i realized because my daughter was only supposed to get two shots today! the dr. came in and said it was ok, but i'm not assured. been going through so much lately, i just want someone to tell me specically what her risks are now. i feel as though i may have been pacified rather than given straight facts.

Avatar n tn After reading the EKG she said it showed heart damage from a silent heart attack ( I had no symptoms that I recognized) FOUR WEEKS LATER (adjusting to the "facts of having "heart damage") I had and ECHO which came back normal. My Dr. said I had NOT had a heart attack and there was NO heart damage and the false findings were a fluke. So my question is...why did the EKG show that I had a damaged heart if in fact there was no damage?
