I went for crusie and stopped by to see my mom on mothers day , all the sudden my jaw just starts achen .... this went on for a little while. My mom gave me a couple of baby asperine , then my arms and finally my chest.

My step dad asked if I wanted to go get looked and I decided I should , but only after putting my bike in there garage 1st.

Well 8min after arriving at the ER , I was told I'm having a heart attack .... they had me in the procedure room and working on me inside of 45min. Thet put a stint in and I'm doing well now. Said it's good I came right in, sooner the better

Not what I had in mind going to see my Mom Sun, I feel bad for my mom.

Double Holy Crap!

Glad to hear the good news (you survived) and you can help with diet and drugs, be sure to start taking Omega 3 fatty acid; it can reverse some of the problems in the coronary arteries for some.

It wasn't so long ago that you wouldn't have survived the day. Thank G_d you did. And glad you're still on the forum and will be able to get that bike out of your mom's garage SOON!

OMG ! It's great you were at your mom's. You might have just thought you could lie down and wait it out. Next time you see your mom, tell her she saved your life. That ought to be a fine Mother's Day present for her.

Thanks every one , never felt this odd pain in my jaws before , I knew some thing wasn't right, I'm glad I decided to go in when I did , not the norm for me

It's amazing what they can do any more. I was awake through the whole proceedure, a little minor disscomfort is all I experianced , doing quite well today and should be going home Tues.

A little change to my diet , a little exercise , some meds for a year or so and I should be fine the Dr says.

If you feel an odd or lingering pain ,arms , back , jaws, neck ,and chest , go get it checked. Time is the key , if they can get a stint in with in 3 hrs of the onset of pain is when the best results are achieved.

Glad your here to type this post. I'm sure your mom is greatful that your okay, and look at it this way, ya got many years to make it up to her.

When my Dad had his first heart attack he was told everyone has their own type of pain, rarely is it the classic numb left arm then chest. His was a burning like he had swallowed something hot. You are fortunate in that you now know what yours is. Take care, the healing process is amazingly fast these days.

Glad you're doing well Duce. A friend of mine had a bad toothache. He called his dentist and he told him he couldn't get to him till the next weekday, if he had problems go by the ER. He woke up that night and told his wife he was going. She stayed with their kids while he drove himself to the ER. Imagine her thoughts when she found out they'd diagnosed a heart attack. It doesn't always appear as the "normal" signs. Take care of yourself.

You're even more fortunate than you realize: if you had been anyplace else, chances are no one would have thought to give you those aspirins. That alone bought you the time you needed to make it. Mom was on the ball there. Glad you're on the recovery side of this thing now.

Turned 53 in Jan , glad it was Mothers day and was over there, I may have tried to lay down and let it pass if I'd been home , that would not have been good.
