my cardiologist wants me to take stress test before he will approve conscious sedation for a colonoscopy. I have abnormal heart rhythms and stress test involves Lexican to speed up heart rate. Manufacturer says do not give Lexican when patient has abnormal heart rhythms. Stress tests can cause heart attack.View Thread
I had a severe heart attack on April 26th . I am a woman 52 years old. after the paramedics and my husband restarted my heart I had a stent put in. I am home now and was wondering how long the pain from the chest compression last? Anyone know? Any one have this happen? ThanksView Thread
Hi people, I'm actually 15 years old and with my early age I become health concious because of my family history. My Grandfather died either because of Heart Attack or High Blood Pressure, I can't really figure out how he died but I asked my Mother and Aunts about the findings of his death and one of those matched base on their statement. When I was on second year high school, I was 14 years old on that time I started to get serious deep heart palpitations and I really like to drink coffee when mornings because I need to keep my self awake all the times at the school. When I was in third year high school I got palpitations too but more worst I think.. I got breathing problems but before I got that problem I got serious heart palpitations and everytime extreme palpitations occurs.. my arms, hands, and legs started to get numbness.. after one week we went to the doctor for the check-up but when they doing ECG tests on me .. it is normal. May 2015, when I started to get angry I think I'm having high blood pressure when my angryness occurs and I got serious palpitations and started to having fear of death but after that.. I got nausea and vomiting and believed it was just my ulcer or heartburn attack.. and sometimes my chest felt like stabbed by nails and whatever I do.. like urinating.. I got little bit of palpitations it took about 10 minutes before I calm down and also I got family history ill.. my mom got nervoussness when I was in his womb.. and I think little panic or nervous attacks occurs but I'm really scared with this.. when I'm doing workout.. in just 10 minutes.. I got extreme palpitations not like before I done my check-up. I am really scared of this feeling. What do you guys think of this?View Thread

I had a heart stent fitted after collapsing while out with friends I went to the hospital and the next day they fitted the stent after having a second heart attack in the night. I was the give a bag of pills told when to take them and sent home . The beta blockers made my heart rate too low and my blood pressure was also low so I basically was wondering around in a daze then I was internally bleeding from the asprin.i didnt realise this as I was so out of it . The nurse took me off the blood pressure pills which improved things a bit .but I still couldn't function .it was then suggested my symptoms were in my head. At this comment I wasn't pleased about the beta blockers where stopped . My heart rests at about 65 now which I have been told is good . The fog in my head has lifted. Since then I have been battling the side effects of ppis and tbe effects of withdrawal I haven't eaten properly for a couple of months .been admitted 4 times to hospital and came out no better .my sister sorted out probiotics etc which are slowly Improving things. I am very depressed I cry alot I ever used to be like this .I have tried to get my head around all of this .I feel completely unsupported and scared. When I asked about keeping an eye on me ie what if I need another stent done in the future I was told I would only get it if I had another heart attack. Surely this isn't right. After all this I am scared of being ill . I cant cope with much more .View Thread
