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.
Avatar m tn Women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms that men have ... you know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest & dropping to the floor that we see in movies. Here is the story of one woman's experience with a heart attack. I had a heart attack at about 10:30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might have brought it on.
Avatar m tn One of my friends has currently been having some puzzling heart problems. She would be sitting in class, and all of a sudden her hear would race. She would immediately report to the infirmary, where the nurse would take her heart beat into record. I think the highest it ever was was pushing 120, almost into 130. It wasn't like she was doing anything physically strenuous. The only other symptom was a slight tingly sensation in her face, no specific part just all over.
Avatar n tn Sayan --------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Sayan, I have talked to Dr. H. Wellens from the Netherlands. He is a world expert in sudden cardiac death due to heart attacks. According to him ther are over 300,000 sudden deaths a year in the U.S. He did not know an exact percentage that occured in cars but I would estimate 3%. Hope this helps. Let us know how your project turns out.

Avatar f tn Heart is racing with worry about Justin. Finally arrived in the afternoon and texted. Still can't shake the anxiety and panic attacks.
Avatar f tn So today I had my first ultra sound and it confirmed the gestational age at 6 weeks plus 3 days. You couldn't see much of course but it was still over whelming being there. It brought back so many memories of being there with my son Jonathan. Definately had some tears. The technician said the heart beat was a little low 100 but not to worry it should pick up in the next week but they may want me to come back next week for a follow up. So needless to say Im terrified!!!

Avatar n tn It seems that I have been waking up extremely startled and scared for the past few nights. I will actually pop up to a sitting position and feel my heart pounding. I wake my roommate with a startled yelp.
Avatar n tn In one way he was fortunate because his heart attacks were considered mild, only little bits of damage to the heart each time. But in the end he still ended up with congestive heart failure. Not an easy way to live. Plus he never changed his lifestyle, still ate terrible food and smoked and rebelled against taking the medications the doctors prescribed. So although I know some things about heart attacks, I couldn't accurately or completely answer all your questions.

Here are some exerpts from the study Women who ate large amounts of red meat had a 20 percent higher risk of dying of cancer and a 50 percent higher risk of dying of heart disease than women who ate less. For processed meats, the increased risks for large quantities were slightly lower overall than for red meat.
1122084 tn?1354721915 I had a 7 weeks US today. Fetal heart beat is 122 ( normal range). I almost cried, as I had 3 miscarriages before, and never heard any heart beats. It was very exciting. But the only thing which worries me is baby measurements. US shows only 6 weeks fetus.And my Beta HCGs are low as well. I might've ovulated 1week later than usual than. Hoping and praying for the best!

Avatar n tn If you have recently been seen by a cardiologist and had a thorough work-up, then your next big hurdle is to accept his DX that your heart is just fine. If you don't trust this, then by all means, go for a second opinion, but if the results come back the same, it's then time to get in front of a therapist to deal with the anxiety behind the "heart" problem.
