Has anyone had different symptoms other than those advertised to be alert for?
I had a sore throat the night before my heart attack in December, 2011. I took a throat lozenge for goodness sake. I went to sleep and the next morning, awoke finding it hard to breathe plus this enormous pressure on my neck - like an elephant sitting on my throat.
The paramedics diagnosed me as having a panic attack, even after questioning my family heart failings (my father, uncle and younger brother all had heart attacks). The ECG performed there was unsteady but still they left me at home. They recommended I go to a hospital to find out what was wrong as by this time I my hands were tingling and had nausea. I owe my life to the alert nurse at the reception desk at the hospital.
