Can someone who had a silent heart attack climb a flight of stairs?
If you had a silent heart attack, can you climb stairs and walk to the corner store, etc. without losing your breath? Sabo - that's not funny.

My father aged 63 is diabetic and 2 weeks back he was having abnormal swelling in both his feet . The general physician suspected an abnormality in his heart and suggested to do an ECG and Echo cardiogarm in which a cardiologist confirmed that he had got a silent heart attack .Next friday(Jan 18th) we would be doing an Angiogram for him. Below are few lines from the echo report Regional wall motion abnormality present - mid and apical septum , apex,mid and apical anterior hypokinetic Moderate LV systolic dysfunction Is doing an Angiogram on 18th Jan (around 9 days from now) too late? Will he require a surgery or an angioplast would be sufficient?

hello. was wondering if i should be concerned. my mother has atrial fibrillation as was given digoxin and metroprolol a few weeks ago. a cardiologist that checked her two days ago said that her heart rate is to slow & that those drugs weren t helping (she was feeling dizzy upon exertion...i.e walking 2-3 mins). now her heart is racing (approx 100-105 bpm and i m concerned. she says she feels fine but does this mean she s at increased risk of heart attack or stroke?
