I am a 38 year old male who had a stent placed in my left diagonal. I went into the emergency room with light headedness, chest pain, tightness and overall blah feeling. After a blood workup, my triponin levels were a bit elevated. I was put into a cath lab and an 80% blockage was found. 2 other minor blockages of less than 30% were also found but not stented. I have a family history of heart disease on both sides. Since the stent I have been on an emotional roller coaster. I have a ton of anxiety. I can't seem to find a emotional peace to much of anything. I am trying to be active, but for some reason I can't let go of the scared feeling. I am on a BP med to control my heart rate, a blood thinner and a statin. I have tingling sensations in my arms and legs and just feel yuck from time to time. Some days I feel awesome and want to conquer the world. Some days I just want to go to bed and forget everything. My question....Is this normal? I have 3 children and an amazing wife and life, yet I am letting this control me. I have had a lot of people tell me to just look at this as a 2nd chance or to be thankful for it being found. I am thankful but that doesnt change the fact that I am scared and nervous about everything. If any of you have any thoughts or past experiences, please let me know.
