Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

I had this morning what may have been a possible mild heart attack. Paramedics were called but they did not feel that is was neccessary for me to go to the hospital. They did however say I needed to go to my Dr. and get checked. Symptoms were a very strong pain in my chest, as if a balloon was filling up and about to burst, along with sweating and much light-headedness and pain in the right side of my mouth that felt like a toothache. I can not get into my Dr. for a couple of days. Is it safe to wait a few days? Suggestions needed, my family is freaking out. Since this morning the light-headedness lasted about another 3 hours or so, and now I am getting a very bad headache, dont know if it is related or not. If I were to take myself to the emergency room at this point wouldnt it be a waste of time? Better to just wait and see my Dr. in a couple of days? pay no mind to the picture, I am actually posting this for my mom, these are her words, I just cut and pasted them for her. She in 49 years old. the paramedics did say her blood presure was high. they also hooked her up to a machine, the results did not indicate she needed to go to the ER. They simply said it was possible a mild heart attack, and sugested she see her Dr, asap. Her Dr could not get her in today... just a bit more info

For over a year I have been having intermittent pain, like an uncomfortableness or pressure in the upper right hand side, behind my ribs. I can press the area and gag. I also have pain in my ear whenever I get this uncomfortableness and I have been told that this is referred pain. I have a daily bowel movement but it is hard and smells odd. It also always floats. I have had an ultrasound and endoscopy and my blood tests are normal. I eat well - lots of vegetables and drink plenty of fluids.
