ALL STUPID PEOPLE LISTEN!! The rest of you read for entertainment purposes. Ummm, okay. I was not going to write anything but apparently my grandma was right, the internet is evil. It allows any knucklehead to prescribe vasodilating medication to any neurotic female anywhere on Earth. Yes, it is true that females do tend to have weird cardiac symptoms. Yes, it is possible for a 29 year old to have one. Should this person take aspirin? Well, she could if she knew how much to take. Do you? I am a licensed EMT in the state of Indiana. If I was called to your house for the symptoms you're having I would give you ASA and suggest you go to the ER to get checked out. Do you know WHY I would give it to you? Not gonna tell you how much because your protocols for treatment may be different in the state you're in. Are you allergic to aspirin? No? What if you developed an allergy to it from the last time taking it? Would you be able to recognize the symptoms of an allergic reaction? What do you do? Secondly, DO NOT EVER TAKE NITRO THAT IS NOT PRESCRIBED TO YOU. You could die. Nitroglycerin is a potent vasodilator. You would have to be a bigger retard than that guy who tried to rob a bank with his hand in the shape of a gun. If you are taking certain medications already, taking nitro with them could kill you in MINUTES. What is it indicated for? Do you know what an indication is? What is it contraindicated for? Do you know what that is? If you don't know, that's fine. What's not fine is listening to advice from people who don't know either. Now I applaud those of us who take an aggressive stance against disease but let's do it responsibly. Or let me put is this way, if you don't have a medical certification: SHUT UP!
