My mum has been complaining about pains in her left shoulder and arm for about 3-4 weeks now. Also weakness in her hand also. She s elderly , has a number of other health problems but is a stroke victim of almost 20 yrs. She thinks it could be related to a heart attack? Does anyone have an idea what it could be? Sensible answers only, thank you!

My ex father in law had to go to hospital for scans and things and they told him his heart was very scarred and had probably had several minor heart attacks. Get her checked out by GP or at hospital. UK ACTION MAN you are very rude ,have more respect for the elderly. That's what the world is short of today

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I live in a cigarette smoking building--I am very allergic to it or sensitive--my heart jumps in my chest at times, then beats up to 120 beats a minute. I'm trying to move, but it's very expensive and I dont have a job. My grandfather died of a heart attack at 78-he was a chain smoker, so not a lot of heart disease on my mom's side. I didnt know my fathers side of the family. Actually my uncle died of a massasive heart attack at 48--Im 47--that was on my mom's side.
