The Women's Room: New to the Forum, just had a heart attack after months of feeling unwell.
Hello everyone, glad to have others to share experiences with.Well I'm in my first week of recovery, I was diagnosed with a heart attack, have stenosis on 3 coronary vessels, worst one was stented as an emergency have two more to be stented next month. Well this all started back in Feb, went to the Optometrist who found the main artery & vein in my Left eye was blocked and I was looseing my central vision.have been treated at hospital for this since. In the past months I had various aches and pains in my back , legs etc..Then suddenly the "indigestion " came on and nothing would stop it, went to A/E had tests, the rest is history. Not feeling too bad but have a very" swishy head", sweating all the time it's not nice . Is it the pills, my condition, anybody have an answer?? I don't like complaining but I would like to get on with my life. I'm 69 yrs old , so surprised at the amount of young people with cardiac problems, suppose I,ve been fortunate, wishing all those with a poor heart a speedy recovery. Love Diane x
