Is it true that an aspirin will prevent a heart attack? Just curious. I take 325 mg when ever I get any kind of pain.

How long can a heart attack last? My dad just had severe chest pain on the opposite side of his heart with shortness of breath...then it went away maybe 5-10 minutes it lasted. I checked his pulse...it seemed in the normal range and listened to his heart...it had normal rate and rhythm I think....I am way over my head with this. He did not feel an ambulance would be necessary. How do I know when it might be bad enough to call an ambulance? ...maybe it was pulled muscle? hernia? what if I ignore it at the wrong time?

hello. my husband suffers high blood pressure, an insurance company don t want to life cover him as his reading was 196/100 (his meds were finished and he had to get more). I now feel like he s a walking heart attack and am worried sick. I don t know what his reading is whilst on meds, but know that the reading is much lower. He s 43, smokes about 10 cigarrettes a day and drinks socially. Am I being paranoid that he s going to suffer some sort of major heart attack soon or is he okay as long as he takes his meds?

I m a 47 female with a history of anxiety. However, I am a firm believer that my anxiety is a reaction from the pain I expierience and not the other way around. I went to my Cardiologist last December and he performed, Echo, EKG, Blood Test, Ultrasound, and even checked my Carotid Artieries (for stroke)... All negative Today I have been expieriencing the following discomfort: pain in and around the collarbone (both sides), pain in and around both shoulderblades, tightness in front of upper chest, pain under my chin. Any suggestions? I also take an aspirin every morning... is that more harmful than helpful?
