From a Heart Attack Survivor

Friday, February 03, 2017

Ladies, please learn the symptoms of a heart attack. Our symptoms are very different from a man's. My symptom was pain in both of my upper arms. I had my heart attack at 47. I'm so thankful that I went to emergency to get it checked out. It saved my life.

Update: Just wanted to let you know this was back in 2010. I did not suffer any heart damage so I am able to do anything that I want. I'm so thankful for that.

    Glad you had a good outcome! I am dealing with heart issues and my symptom is a severe throbbing in my throat. Got to the ER a few days ago to get meds to puT my heart back in rhythm and HR back to normal. Not my first trip for this. Scary stuff. I am 68 and finally decided that going to the ER and letting them decide whether what I am experiencing is a medical emergency. The worst that can happen is they send me home and say I'm fine. Don't avoid getting help!!
