I had my heart attack 7 months ago while teaching. I was a STEMI with 98% blockage and needed 2 stents in my LAD the crazy thing is that I am 31 year old female, non smoker with low blood pressure and colesterol with a healthy weight. There was damage to my heart and the apex of my heart does not contract properly. I have an ejection fracture of 40%. It sounds worse than I feel. I do get tired easily and sometimes short of breath but I really do feel great!! I just got taken off my bp meds and feel much better. The doctors seem to think the car reck I had 9 months prior that cracked my sternum may have caused the artery to dissect, leading to the plac build up. heart attacks can happen to any one at any time. I am truly blessed and thankful for all those who did their part in saving my life.
