I have just signed up to HeathUnlocked.
I am 55 had a widowmaker heart attack followed by 3 cardiac arrests back in 2017.
When we got to hospital my wife was told she should get the family in.. gulp ... and yet here I am!
Thanks to fantastic care I was resuscitated and had emergency cath lab treatment; I had the blockage removed and a stent inserted within approx 3 hours of the incident (in the middle of the night thanks to paramedics having the ability to transmit the ecg results direct to the cath lab and everyone being there and scrubbed up when I arrived)
I am generally quite well ... but have been to A&E 4 times. with chest 'pains' .. or more precisely an unusual feeling.. every time I have been just fine .. so it is me being over sensitive ... but I really can't tell what I should be worried about ... it's a constant worry which hopefully improves every month.
I am pre diabetic .. but I am not sure if that has developed because of my condition or meds .. anyone have any views on this?
How do you know when to be worried?
