I have been hypothyroid for years. Since I was in my early 20's and they have never said anything liket that to me. The Drs I mean. Anything is possible as there is no mirror to look and see what you are doing to your body.

My gran passed away last week after complaining of awful chest pain through the night. She described it as if something in her chest was going to burst. However the doctor came out said her heart sounded fine and bp was fine too. The doctor prescribed zoton but told her if the pain remained after two hours to seek further medical assistance. She took the tabs a went for a snooze on the couch. 3 hours later she died were she lay. Her only other symptom was feeling really cold. I feel my gran may of suffeted a major heart attack during night she struggled through the pain saying it was worse than child birth. Doctor was happy to put down MI caused by ischaemic heart disease. Secondary to hypertention. Do you feel there was something else her doctor could of done. She was 93 but was very much mobile lived in her iwn home. Apart from hypertention which never caused her bother we thought she would see 100 for sure.

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,
