Would my father have felt any pain ?

My father died suddenly(literally just fell down at work) and it was discovered at autopsy(he was only 42) that he had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy . It was obviously a real shock, do you think that he would have been in pain when he died ?

No - this is the wonderful thing about instant deaths. They didn't even know what hit them - the death is quick and painless. I am so sorry for your loss.

I have severe pains in my lower abdomen, both sides, but mostly left and lower back. I had severe pain and nausea after eating oil. I ve also had stabbing pains in rib area, indigestion, heartburn and dizziness. What can cause this? My father had to have his gallbladder taken out. Could that be it or kidney problems? I feel worse when I eat and can t digest foods.

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?
