I had a heart attack

I didnít even know it happened. I went to the ER before Christmas because I was experiencing symptoms ...shortness of breath, wheezing, rapid heartbeat. It lasted for about three hours and wouldnít subside.? My EMT husband took my to out little 45 bed hospital where I stayed for 3 days having as many tests the could provide over the weekend. All the nurses thanked me for coming in and not ignoring my symptoms.
The cardiologist assured me I did not have a heart attack. I went today for a stress test and he took let me know that some time ago I did in fact had a heart attack but my heart had improved since my hospitalization. I cannot pinpoint when it happened except that evening. I am so grateful that I didnít ignore my symptoms. I now know that little hospital was amazing.

I am glad that you didnít ignore your symptoms. I often read that women have very different symptoms than men.
Take care!

Glad you are feeling better! Sounds like you didn't have some of the symptoms that are drummed into our heads such as pain and nausea.

Oh, my! I'm glad you are feeling better now. My best friend had a similar experience to yours, and it was also her DH who insisted on a trip to the hospital where she stayed for several days. All's well that ends well.

Thank you for the reminder not to ignore possible symptoms.

How scary for you and your family, although thank goodness your husband has such good training. Please take care of yourself and know I'm sending healing prayers your way. Stay healthy and I promise to try to do the same!
