Common Questions and Answers about Heart attacks in america


Avatar n tn I have had some freak crazy things happen to me both in Japan and back in America. In Japan I had that incident where someone slipped something in my drink. Here, just a few days ago, I was out at a bar with the people from work. I was outside wanting a cig, and ran out. I bummed one off of a guy from work, and then started freaking out later in the night and had to go home. The next day the dude said he dipped those cigarrettes in embalming fluid.
Avatar f tn lately i get constant pain up and down my arms and into my shoulders then center of my chest hurts and it feels heavy but not real bad it kinda feels like heart burn. the pain in my arms will only be in one arm at a time. the past 2 days the pain in arm and chest comes and goes..and i've read that in women symptoms are different sometimes than in men..im worried because the pain is becoming more frequent than it has been..
Avatar m tn I am a 48 year old white male, and I have already had a total of 5 heart attacks (all within the last 5 tears). At first my doctoer thought it was due to my low HDL, as it has been lower that 28 for the last 5 years. But after my last attack, about 3 months ago, the doctors are now thinking that my body is trying to reject the 3 stents the have pkaced in me. This last attack was pretty serious, and we are planning to have a defibri;ator implanted later this month.

Titled "ISIS in America: From Retweets to Raqqa," the report by Lorenzo Vidino and Seamus Hughes focuses on around 300 people who have been identified as American recruits or supporters of ISIS.
1301089 tn?1290666571 But does anyone remember the Friendship medals the Japanese presented to America just before they bombed Pearl Harbor? Anyone remember the German Bunds flourishing in prewar America? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_American_Bund Does anyone remember how many Japanese posing as tourists or even residents were actually spies? Nazis were fanatical. Chamberlain tried to appease them. Fanatics see appeasement as weakness.
Avatar f tn I never lived life thinking about race or color, but it just hit me that I will be raising a black boy in America. Its so sad with all the police killings of unarmed blackmen in America. In fact it recently happened in my neighborhood. To think that one day my son will be a blackman in America scares me. Any other mothers having or have black children worry about this?
2170635 tn?1357911686 I was surprised to see in 'one born every minute USA' (I'm in the UK) a patient give in and ask for an epidural and the midwife reply "well yeah of course, you wouldnt let a dentist pull your teeth without pain relief" if you ask for it here you would be told "but you're doing so well, how about we wait 10mins and see then" they tend to discourage it here...
Avatar f tn We once thought maybe the immunizations were a factor but that has currently been ruled out as not having any substantial evidence to support it. Now in my grandsons case, he was born with it. Is this only in America or is this problem worldwide and what are your theories as to its origin.
Avatar m tn My heart was racing, heart palpatations, sick to stomach, hot flashes, trembleing, etc. Took a Xanax right away. Thank God for those! I've been under a lot of stress with on & off attacks since Wednesday. I'm explaining all of this just to let you know I understand what you're going through & you are certainly not alone.
Avatar f tn Anxiety can manifest itself in many painful and frightening symptoms. That you went to the ER and had a fairly rigorous exam was the best thing you could have done..........but, since this pain is continuing, in my humble opinion, (and if I was you) I would pursue this further before accepting it as just anxiety. I certainly do not want to scare you, but as I'm sure you know, heart attacks in women presents much different symptoms than in men.
237039 tn?1264258057 I have been given Morphine in the hospitals during my heart attacks, and most recently was given Morphine quite frequently. I was told last April, the reason they were giving me Morphine at short intervals is because it "oxygenates" the heart. As long as I had the chest pains they were administering the Morphine at 30 minute intervals. I protested the frequent use, but was told it was for that reason I was being given that much.
268911 tn?1213744781 Wheat farmers now get 3 acres of yield from 1 acre of land. Dairy cows now give 3 years worth of milk in just one year and we wonder why America is sick from problems such as anxiety, ADD, ADHD, and all kinds of intestinal problems like I have. Stress does not help either. Anyway....I would be interested in knowing if any of you have changed your diet alone and noticed improvement. Also..what kinds of foods did you eat? Peace out.
Avatar f tn In my case, I have had heart attacks and have a couple of stents in my RCA. I suffer with alot of chest pains. So much so that I recently went to the ER thinking it was another heart attack. While there it was found that I suffer with coronary artery spasms and they do put me down. I have to stop what I am doing and wait for it to pass. There are other reasons for chest pains, and I wish there was a way to stop these.
Avatar n tn My Dad had 4 heart attacks in his lifetime. They did a lot of damage to his heart (muscle tissue died from the lack of blood flow) but he continued on. Finally died from lung cancer (thank you cigarettes, but that's another story).
Avatar m tn Still, she should go in to have a heart check up and see if everything else is OK in there. There may be some small electrical problems that she's not feeling and they can see them then. Hope she gets some help and answers soon.
572651 tn?1530999357 You might take a few minutes to watch this informative video that is playing this year for GO RED - in between the fun presentation it touches on many of the serious common misconceptions about heart attacks and could possibly save your life some day. It illustrates what so many women do through day in and day out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Avatar f tn Has anyone here noticed an increase in your heart rate since you started having panic attacks.When I stand and do regular activities my heart beats so fast.I started a beta blocker which didn't work.I prob will be starting on a new one soon.

4205995 tn?1351169508 If nothing can be found then you may simply need to be on meds to help control your heart from beating too fast. In general it isn't a danger to you so only as you work to keep it under control. So go and do some investigating and hopefully you can find the root cause and have a game plan to manage or correct the issue. Take care.
1194973 tn?1385503904 (They make a small cut in the femoral attery in your groin and thread a small tube with a camera up the artery and into your heart) They found that two of the four major arteries in my heart were both over 90% blocked. The surgeon said he was amazed I hadn't had a heart attack. So, did I know there was something THAT wrong with my heart? No. I later had two stents placed and not only did that odd burning sensation go away, I'm still alive. A real bonus in my book!
Avatar m tn I would talk to the gym instructor b4 doing any more gym work they might tell you what you should do. Are you in America??? If you are I can understand why you haven't been to the doctors yet. But if your in a country that doesn't charge for ER consultations you should have gone.
