Heart Attack at 53
October 1, 2019 was my day off. I had what I thought was the worst indigestion I have ever had. My husband and I were setting on our deck discussing the days plans. We had gotten up and came inside. I told him I just dont feel like doing anything today. I got up to go lay down, the walk to the bedroom I noticed I was having alot of trouble breathing. I had laid down for a while. A few minutes later I broke out into a cold sweat, was very clammy. The indigestion was worse. So bad that I now had pain along both jaws, across my left shoulder and down into my left arm. By this time I am also nauseated and know something is very wrong. We had some chewable aspirin, so I ate one, just incase. My husband called emts because I was very dizzy when I tried to stand. They came and I went with them. The emt believed I had something wrong with my stomach, but gave me nitro and aspirin anyway. As time passed in the er the doctor came in and told me it was my heart and that I am being admitted. I was put on a nitro drip and fluids and shipped up to icu. They had confirmed I had a heart attack. The next morning I had a total of 5 stents placed in my rca artery. It was 100% blocked. I had other blockages too, but he left them alone. On January 30, 2020 I found myself in the cath lab once again for placement of a stent in my widowmaker. Thank God I did not have another heart attack. I really believed I just had indigestion. Women do not always have classic symtoms. Please always pay attention to your body. Now I set and wonder, will my life ever be normal again. Or will it always be Dr appts and so on. I need to talk to others that know how I feel.
