I experienced a heart attack in my early fifties, about fifteen years ago. The
symtoms were, feeling clammy, nausea and what I thought was heart burn with the
strangest feeling in my neck and jaw. The ER (in Utah) attributed it to stress
and prescribed xanex. My GP thought everything looked and sounded ok. but
referred me to a cardiologist and the minute I jumped on the treadmill with the
dye in me the doctor said stop ! You've had a heart attack. I went in the
next morning for an angiogram and sure enough I had experienced a heart attack.
I hope procedures and protocols have changed.
