I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I think i got a heart attack. I have one blockage that is at 50 percent.

5I had a tipple by-pass when 59 Years old for a heart attack . I am now 68 years old. My Father died of a hear attack when he was 41 and is brother dropped dead from a heart attack at 27 When I am just sitting down reading or looking at T.V. I some times have jaw pain that is extremely painful it happens on both sides of my jaw at the same time. I have woke up in the middle of the night with it. I take Nitro for the pain. My other systems that I have had is getting extremely hot breaking in to a sweat. One time I woke up gasping for air. About a month ago I was sitting down and my right arm and the right side of my face when completing num. This all lasting for no more that 10 seconds. I thought that I was having a stroke but the doctors said no That it was to short of time for a TIA. I never have trouble when I am exercise or cutting the lawn. This all happens when I am at rest. The only thing that I do know is that I have one blockage that is at 50 percent.

Most heart attacks happen at "REST". After a heavy meal, no walk or exercise, between. Be aware of what you are eating, and do continue to cut your grass and exercise. Obviously there is a genetic link, but if you eat well, exercise and love yourself, you can beat this! Good luck!

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
Regards,
