Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic


An Inferior wall ‘attack’ is often mistaken for ‘stomach’ upset.

In the background of recent attack, there is no opton but to have a look at the heart – there is no guarantee that the next one may be ‘mild.’

Any pain at this age should be investigated as HEART PAIN – UNLESS PROVED OTHERWISE.
In suspected heart attack, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE – if detected early, an attack may even be aborted / the amount of damage and complications can be reduced remarkably.
The most important time is the first few hours.

Better be safe than sorry - treated if a problem is found / Happy, if it turns out otherwise
Take him to the hospital.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
