August 3rd 2018, I had a heart attack and now have one 3mmx23mm stent in my left anterior descending artery. My Dr. said that artery was 95% plugged and called it a widow maker. He said I have another artery that's about 40 plugged but is hopefull that the meds will take care of that. I am 50 years old, I've been somewhat physically active. The last 18 years I was a smoker. I have not touched them since my heart attack and I don't plan on it. My syptoms prior to the event were my neck and my upper back were extremely soar and tight. I was getting horrible headaches with messed up vision. This lasted a couple weeks. I thought I had a pinched nerve so I went to the chiropractor a couple times but that didn't help. The day it happened, I was working at home and just couldn't catch my breathe and we have a blood pressure machine, mine was sky high. Thankfully my wife made me to the er and they immediatley started working on me. 4 hours later I had a stent in place. Physically I feel much better, not a 100% but much better. Mentally I'm struggling with anxiety and maybe depression and I am having a very hard time focusing on anything. I was in school full-time but I just withdrew. I'm just not ready for that right now. I think I need to focus on me for a while. Thanks for listening and I'm here for advice and coming to terms with what just happened to me. My Dr. says everything looks good but I have many unanswered questions and feeling to deal with.
