04/05/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

I recently received an e-mail giving an alert about how a women’s heart attack symptoms are different than the stereo typical description that we’ve heard of horrible stabbing pain in the chest, or the arm numbing sweating…then falling on the floor.

This female nurse described her heart attack beginning on an evening with no significant stress, reading a book.  Then she felt what she thought was indigestion (something stuck in her throat like something that hadn’t been chewed well enough).  Then she felt squeezing motions up her spine that raced under her sternum (the place where you press to do CPR).  Then it moved up her throat, into her jaw.  She knew the pain in the jaw was a symptom of a heart attack (I didn’t know that).  She got to a phone, called 911.  She passed out before the EMT’s arrived.  They did an angiogram at the hospital.  She realized later, the symptoms at home took only 4-5 minutes in total.

They say more women than men die of their first heart attack, because they don’t know the symptoms.  Don’t be embarrassed to bother the EMT’s…CALL!  Don’t drive to an emergency room.  You may pass out behind the wheel and your car doesn’t have oxygen canisters in it!

Don’t assume you’re too young, too healthy, or that your cholesterol levels are good, so it must be indigestion.  Cholesterol is not always a proper indicator of a heart condition.  If you think your symptoms are a red flag, they just might be.
