    I'm glad you're here to tell the tale. A close friend of mine had a heart attack two weeks ago, and is doing well. You're obviously feeling well enough to post. I hope you are up and about again quickly.

    So does anyone have any questions? My attack lasted for 6 hours, because I didn't know ALL the signs of a heart attack.

    • gladsdotter

      Please do share the symptoms.

      • CrookedTale

        Ok. Heres the scoop. We all know about the "pain/tightness on chest and left arm = heart attack" that actually never happened for me. My first symptom was shortness in breath and coughing. Rather harmless. But the coughing got worse. Then I started to feel nausea, a fever, cold sweats, like I had the flu hit me. Which is what I thought was happening. So I started to throw up violently, every last bit came out and anything that went in after that session would immediately came out. By this time o am about 2 hours into the heart attack.

        Now I threw up so hard that I actually hurt my back. Or that is what I thought. I already have a bad back so when my back felt like it went out I ignored it like the rest of the symptom. So I sat on th couch, took some advill and tried to relax. But my back, shoulders and both arms were in so much pain. Because pf this pain I never felt the pain in my chest and never thought I was having a heart attack. It wasn't until I woke my wife and had her take me to the ER that I figured it out. I was planning on just taking my pills and suffering until morning. But with100 percent closure by the time the doctor saw me I actually would have died.

        So dont think it is all chest and left arm.

    What the hell? I have a heart attack at the same time Taco bell introduces naked chicken chaloupa's? Not friken fair!

        But I cant have one! The universe is against me.

        • AdelleChattre

          Maybe it's for the best. Have you seen these chalupas? You try your first one and you're hooked!

          • CrookedTale

            I only see them on tv. I am betting they look different out in the wild. All I really have eaten in the past 2 days is porage (sp) and broth. I die a lttle from longing everytime the naked chicky chalupa comercial comes on.

    So the reason I put this whole mess on Snapzu is because I like new experiences. I know it may seem weird but this is all interesting as heck. Plus I lived through it so I have no idea how it will affect me yet. There are some things that I had no idea the body could do. Like the signs of a heart attack and how long a heart attack can last ( by the way it's weeks). I didn't know that my right artery/ventricle was 100% blocked. But my heart has been rerouting blood through it by building new pathways (veins???). So this has been going on awhile. I also learned that on paper, for years, I have been in perfect health other than a back injury. I always get tested for everything, blood, diabetes, cholesterol, etc, Twice a year and have had no problems whatsoever. But suprise! Here's a major heart attack for you bitch! I will have to work on getting better tests!

    Yo-ho-ho-ho! How's th' grub? When be ye gettin' sprung from th' hospital? Be ye well treated by ye captors? Get well before I sail out 'n by grog git ye well.

    • CrookedTale

      Hey! I got out of the hospital!!! They can't keep a good, or bad, pirate down. But I am concerned about being out of the hospital. I think it has more to do with the doctors/hospitals recovery numbers than my ability to kick the reapers ass. I caught a ccna and a nurse talking about the cardio doctor and the "problem" with him being so late when he was called in to fix me and pressure foe the hospital to.get better tirn aroind times. But I am not going to complain because hospital beds suck and I couldn't sleep much. I also learned that nospotal beds, the new ones, adjust the firmness and softness automaticly to a persons weight and position. So it is always moving underneath you. So I would get in a comfortable position then 2 min later the bed woild adjust itself and I would be uncomfortable again. The things you learn!

        That sounds worse than a water bed. I hate those things! I've not been hospitalized since I was a kid for having my tonsils removed.

        I caught a ccna

        No clue what that is. Can you explain? Anyway,I'm glad you got through the ordeal. Want to hear about my unsedated colonoscopy? :D

        • CrookedTale

          It is supposed to be cna, certified nurses assistant. A nurses helper, they take care of taking vitals and wipe buts. I have yet to have a colonoscopy!

      Had a few problems last week and I feel like I have only been sleeping. The cut they made at the femoral started to look weird and complicated. I still have to work on my "Aggravation" in life. It will be a long road to change.

      Forgive me though your description of the symptoms and effect are something I have experience of with hospitalisation for a cardiac infarction when I was 43. I was working in an office and discovered slumped over my keyboard. It was not fun in any way. Not going to bore you with the details though suffice to say It transpires I had had myocarditis. I'm fortunate only now needing beta blockers. Though still ocassionally get a signal jolt when I'm asleep sometimes which can, near instantly, double my heart rate; a bit scary. Enough from me already as I'm quite new to snapzu really. I wish you well and hope you make as full a recovery as possible.
