@NewRiverGeorge - If you don't mind me asking, do you have a medical background?
This is a discussion on I had a wake up call within the Food, Health and Fitness Survival forums, part of the Survivalist, Prepper, Bushcrafter, Forest Rangers category; @ NewRiverGeorge - If you don't mind me asking, do you have a medical background?...
If I had a heart attack I would eat copious amounts of ganja treats daily.
Hope you are well.

There is a body of evidence to indicate many women mistake an upper back ache as nothing to worry about, . . . and indeed it is a heart attack.
And in that same article I was reading, . . . the percentage of "no pain" heart attacks is significantly higher in women, . . . where the damage is just done, . . . and the pain comes later.
But that is another subject, . . . glad all is well with you on this one.
Stay safe and keep reloading.

That is certainly a very scary wake up OP. I will wish you better health as time passes.
I try with some diligence to be healthy for a few reasons. First, my Father suddenly died of a massive heart attack in 1999 at the age of 55 with no warning and a clean bill of health from what I was told. Second, my family history is ripe with heart disease and heart attacks. I am 47 and have long had that worry about serious cardiac problems. I am at a very healthy weight, jog/exercise diligently, have a pretty good diet, no alcohol or smoking and see my MD as recommended. I do have high blood pressure, but that has dropped with exercise and weight loss. My cholesterol is average as well. Even with that my MD is looking at starting me on a cholesterol med as a precautionary move.
I want to stick around for a while yet for my Daughters and I am determined to be in fighting shape when the Commie lefties take things too far, as I plan to partake in the purging.
Glad you’re ok and recovering. The cardiovascular systems is nothing to take for granted.
Two years ago this month I had sporadic chest pains and pain down my left arm. Went to the ER and they jumped on it. I was admitted and a cardio guy called. 2 days in the hospital and every test possible and the results were negative. In fact they said I had the heart of someone much younger. What a relief!! Turns out it was a combination of an old chest/shoulder injury, pulled muscles and some asthma/allergies that combined to bring on the symptoms.
Point being that as we get up there, and our (maybe mine) mispent youth catch up to us, it’s good to go get a full check up of the major systems.
And with that in mind, I’m going to schedule my annual physical right now.

I am very thankful to the firemen at the station in Switzerland, fl. And to the cardio team the handled my case at baptist south, in Jacksonville, fl.
