So it is confirmed. Sometime between Saturday and today, I had a heart attack. This is a wakeup call that some lifestyle changes need to be made.
I felt chest pain and some other symptoms, buy but I thougbt it was indigestion and flu. I took it easy on Sunday, and by coincindence I happened to have a doctor appointment Monday, so I told her my symptoms, as I was still having chest pain. She did an EKG, which was “abnormal” and referred me to a cardiologist, telling me to call if I did not hear from them in a week.
I felt bad last night and this morning, and the chest pain persisted. So I went to urgent care, who sent me to the hospital for more tests. They verified that I had a heart attack, but now they are trying to figure out if it is finished or ongoing. I will get an angiogram tomorrow, and possibly additional procedures if needed. I am looking at 2-4 days in the hospital as they monitor me and come up with a treatment plan.
This is scary stuff Oppos, and I should have come in earlier in these symotoms. If ypu have chest pain, do not wait and see if it gets better. Call 911 and go.
