    Heart Pain from Work Stress

    I'm a 23-year-old whose been healthy my whole life. I weight train 3-4 times a week and used to be an endurance athlete (competed in over fifty long-distance races). I graduated college about six months ago and started a job one month later. Work's really competitive (it's an outreach/sales job) and the stress I'm under is really, really high. After a month or two I started having a heart time sleeping and my anxiety went through the roof, so I started taking Celexa to help with that....

    99 - 100% blockage in LAD artery

    I'm a little concerned about the results of a heart catherization I had about 10 days ago. It showed 99-100% blockage in the LAD artery, and 70-80 % in the rest. At that point the doctor was very concerned, and asked me several times if I was sure I didn't have a heart attack. He discussed the options with me, stents or bypass surgery. He recommended bypass surgery. He sent me to a surgeon, who questioned my ability to handle surgery, given he may not be able to get a good vein out of my....

    Walking through screening machines with a pacemaker

    My father got a pacemaker from Medtronic, it was inserted in Israel and now he will be traveling with it to New York. We know that he can show his document in the airport and they will not screen him, but what about all the screens that I see in every department store entrance and many stores, stadiums and supermarkets? Is it safe to walk through them? During his last visit I was so concerned that I didn't let him walk into any stores where I saw screening machines which was pretty much everywhere....

    Heart Failure

    I would like to share with you my story. I am Daniel and what I thought was the flu, turned out to be something much worse. When I was so weak, he decided it was time to visit the local emergency room. It was there that doctors discovered his my pulse was 180 and out of rhythm. Me and my family were preparing for the worst, however I had one particular reason to fight for: My first child was on the way. The next morning, I was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. I was sent....

    Sharp chest pains

    For the past 10 plus years I go through spells of sharp stabbing chest pains that last a second or two. They occur roughly every five minutes and can last for days or months. I know it’s not heart related because I have had many tests that have came back fine. These usually occur during the day and when I’m sleeping go away until morning. My guess is stress and/or anxiety is causing this but no matter what I do I can not rid myself of them. By the end of the day I am completely spent from having....

    No one answering

    I thought I'd drop in at the heart health message board and noticed that not one single message had a reply. What's the story?

    CT of left circumflex coronary artery repaired itself

    Prior to a Hip replacement, I had an EKG and it showed a problem with my heart. [Sorry about my medical ignorance]. Any way I had Reumatic fever as a child. But supposedly no Heart problems. Anyway a stress test showed a problem and a Heart Cath was done. The results were CT of left circumflex coronary artery. To fill in the blanks a bit, the performing Dr told me the artery was closed and the preceeding portion of the closest artery Grew New Pathways that supplied blood the the area that was cut....
