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'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?

Avatar n tn I know the symptoms of heart attack and stroke can be different for women than for men, thus I thought I should ask rather than just assuming everything is now OK. I know I've covered a lot of your board topics here, but wasn't quite sure where to post! Thanks in advance for your help!
Avatar f tn It may not have been a heart attack, but it could have been an insufficient supply of blood to heart cells with exertion of going up a stairway. Sometimes that can cause heart cell damage so you should see a doctor to have an exam to rule out out anthing serious which appears you have already done. It is difficult to know whether you should wait or have an immediate evaluation...I would call the dotor's office and ask for advice.

Avatar f tn You had the jaw thing going on and the arm sensation and those can be heart attack symptoms in a women. I believe they are all migraine but you should check. Do you still have the symptoms? The sooner the better , I would just go into the ER because they will get it all done . If you are ok then you are done. Your regular doctor won't get it all done in a day. The reason the sooner is not to freak you out it is that the treatment works better if it was a stroke.
