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 30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might have brought it on. I was sitting all snugly & warm on a cold evening, with my purring cat in my lap, reading an interesting story my friend had sent me, and actually thinking, 'A-A-h, this is the life, all cozy and warm in my soft, cushy Lazy Boy with my feet propped up.
Avatar n tn Besian Idrizaj was Austrian who played for Swansea City and died in his sleep at his native home in Austria of 'suspected' heart attack. We can't jump to conclusions and presume it was his heart, it could have been a number of things. Let's see what the post mortem reveals.
Avatar m tn I'm not a doctor, but I understand people can be having a heart attack and still have a normal or near normal blood pressure. Heart attacks in women don't always include the same/typical symptoms as they do in men. Also, it's fairly common in women that symptoms of a heart attack come and go--so just because the clear up doesn't mean you're not having a heart attack. Better safe than sorry, right? I would seek medical attention immediately. First, take a 325 mg.
Avatar m tn I was also very tired all the time. You are young at 42 but you do need to find a way to get checked out. My sister had her heart attack at 45. It's better to know what's going on. It could be stress and stomach issues or it could be heart related. Please keep us up to date on what you find out.
Avatar n tn t good. no you are not too young to have a heart attack. STRESS can cause taht in itself. please please get check out for your sake, your life may depend on it, by the way being 16 you should qualify for some state medicaid. I have also never had anyone press on my breast to see if I were having a heart attack eben if I have a pulled muscle I have never had one pressing there.
Avatar f tn First of all, I am sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. Something caused the heart attack like a blood clot or blockage in the artery. I am not sure why the nurse would tell him to quit taking the heart medication. The medication is very important. Did he die of a heart attack? Now, it is important for you to know your cholesterol levels, make sure that you are eating healthy. LDL levels should be 100 or below, HDL for men 40's, for women 50's, triglycerides below 150.
Avatar n tn Women do not get the same symptoms as men do with a heart attack, any sign of a heart attack must be taken seriously, do not let a strange symptom like belching throw you off, this too could be a symptom!!
Avatar n tn Of course, not every heart attack is fatal. The total number of heart attacks in the USA in a year is about 1.5 million. That works out to about 4,000 heart attacks a day. In the USA, 27.8% of men are smokers and 23.3% of women are smokers. Smoking greatly increases the risk of a heart attack. I hope this has been useful. A site on the Internet that contains lots of these statistics is the American Heart Association site at www.americanheart.org. Good luck with your school project.
Avatar f tn I am a 29 year old mother. For the past 3 hours or so I have had chest pain in the center of my chest and above my left breast in the breast bone area. I have left shoulder pain and shortness of breath. It is very late and my girls are asleep. I am a single mom and do not want to drag them out in the middle of the night to the ER. I am worried and very uncomfortable. Aren't i too young for a heat attack? PLEASE HELP!! Thank you!!
Avatar f tn s girl who is dating and in love with a guy who is 60. He is very active in life and really young looking. My question for you is when do men slow down and is it normal for a guy that age to lose his erection during sex. He can be going strong but then boom. It makes me feel like it's me and it makes me feel awful to be honest. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn I have had lots of angina in the past, so I know how, in general, how angina is experienced in men. I have never heard of angina being experienced as a cramp in the chest. I could surely be wrong though. The important thing to me is that you have a history of a congenital heart defect, that ~25% of the population have. ( Isn't that amazing?
Avatar m tn I am sure you are aware if you have a family history of anyone under the age of 50 having a heart attack it puts you in a higher risk group as well as a family history of blood clots so they should be super pro active with your treatment plan. With LVEF docs now have all types of new options to combat with including the fairly new med neuregulin that has great results from the clinical testing that i have read about so you may want to talk to your doc and see if it may work for you.
Avatar n tn I have been told that heart attack symptoms are different in women than in men. What signs should a woman look for?
994817 tn?1249738278 Can I have Coronary Artery Disease, Heart Attack, or Heart Disease at such a young age? Did all of the caffeine I drank in my childhood/adolescence possibly have an effect on my heart? And if it did have an effect, is it life threatening? PLEASE, anyone who can give me advice or who goes through the same thing please let me know. Some hope and peace of mind is very much needed.
Avatar n tn I still can not get an answer as to why I had the heart attack within 45 days of a CT heart scan and other tests showing no signs of blockage. I have been under the care of a cardiologist for five years, when diagnosed with a failing aortic valve and enlarged ascending aorta.....with suggestions from doctor's that I may have Marfan's syndrome.
Avatar f tn I have been told I have a heart murmur and while I was pregnant I was preeclamptic and I had to have several ECG because of fast and irregular heart beats so far I have not been told I have anything wrong with my heart but last night I started having sudden left arm pain in the lower forearm and upper should so I am a little freaked out considering my health history so I am wondering if this could be heart related and if so should I be worried?
Avatar n tn 34 yr male just suffered my second heart attack in a year. Had a stress test done got mildly depressed ejection fraction of 40 to 45% with inferior hypokinesis. How long do I have left? And is it safe for me to work on my feet in a stressfull work place or do I apply for disability?
Avatar n tn Funny show XD
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.
17567 tn?1276202029 the cholesterol is now cut in half to 130. I could probably still do better by shedding another few pounds but in hindsight doing these few things makes one feel good about one's self, sort of a self-positive-reinforcement!
