Coronary Heart Disease Support Group

Coronary heart disease is the end result of the accumulation of plaques within the walls of the arteries. While the symptoms and signs of coronary heart disease are noticable in the advanced state of disease, most with coronary heart disease show no evidence of disease for decades as the disease progresses before the first onset of symptoms, often a "sudden" heart attack, finally arise.

    Statins?

    3
    I'm new to your group and have had high cholesterol my entire life.I saw a cardiologist a few days ago and he suggested I start on a statin due to my high LDL/high triclycerides. No other risk factors.I have read that cholesterol has nothing to do with heart disease as half of those who have heart attacks have low cholesterol and half high cholesterol. Homocystine level is the real concern. ...

However, after a lot of stress with work and home this last month....This morning I woke up with terrible dizziness. It hasn't stopped all day. When I turn my head, the room spins. I've never...

    Small Vessel Disease

I was told by my Cardiologist that I was "out of options" because all my vessels are too small to put even a stent in, not to mention a bypass or angioplasty. Needless to say I freaked out when she told me this. Thank God that my parents were here when I was told this. I started walking immediately and...
