hello,
Welcome to Health Care Magic,
You can have a Heart attack at any age.But its rare for a younger age.It takes a years of abuse to damage anyones heart enough to cause a heart attack.attack below the age of 34 years is rare and 1 in 30,000 individuals.If you feel that you had one it might be a panic attack but get it checked once.

I am a 33 yr old female and I swear I have heart issues. I have had so many test done for my heart and everything has come back 100% normal. i have had countless number of EKG s I have a 48 heart montior I had a echo of my heart. my bp is a little high (bottom number in the low 80 s) my cholesterol total is 166. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and my Dr (bless his heart he is awesome) says all the things I feel is related to my panic not heart. Is there really anything else they could do to test my heart or did I pretty get everything? My doc said he wouldn t send me for a cardic cath cuz everything else was fine. Yes I do take meds to my panic attacks.

My friend had a Heart Attack. All I know from talking to his wife is that they did not perform any surgery, and that his heart stopped beating for about 10 minutes before any attempt to resuscitate could be made. He is in a "self-induced coma" on life support and they are starting a process to turn the life support down to see if the body reacts or starts to show signs of taking over. My questions are: What is the potential for brain damage?; and Is a recovery possible?

My friend (43 yrs female) was admitted to hospital in January with BOOP. she was found to have 2 bacterial cases of pneumonia and one viral. She had respiratory failure and was in the ICU unite for 14 days under induced coma. She went for a check up with the consultant today and he has prescribed Septrin tablets to be taken 3 times weekly. does this mean she is still infected? Also, as my friend lives with me and came out of hospital on 1st February I presumed she was clear. However, I visited my mother on 28th February for a week and after 2 weeks she informed me that she has bronchial pneumonia. Could I have been the carrier?

Thank you.
