I am 50 years old and in good physical health as far as my heart is concerned. At 50 while I was getting my hair cut, enjoying my relaxing day I started to have a heart attack… Like so many have now warned, it wasn’t like your classic male heart attack symptoms, it wasn’t even like the now publicized female symptoms… For me it was a combination of both male and female with my own twist.
I am not a medical professional or do I have a medical background; this is just my story and what happened to me. I am posting this to help other people that might have a similar situation in their lifetime and if my story can make someone stop and think, if I could help another person or even save a life, then telling my story is worth it.
The reason that I listened to my symptoms and sought medical help was because I had seen the Barbara Walters ABC Special: ‘A Matter of Life and Death’. She also spoke about it in her show The View and those two platforms gave me enough information to know when it started to happen to me something was not right and I needed to get help immediately!
To get the information on my heart attack at 50 check out my Heart Attach @ 50 video on YouTube.
Here is also a link to another information site and one that I like to use when I want medical answer.
Here is another good link from The American Heart Association:
‘Signs of a Heart Attack in Women’
I hope my story helps others, especially women, as heart disease is the #1 killer of women! Just because you are young, healthy, do all the right things, and live a healthy lifestyle doesn’t me an you are exempt for Heart Disease or a Heart Attack… Listen to your body, don’t feel silly, if you think it feels wrong check it out… Better wrong than dead!
