Heart Attack Support Group

Heart attack is a serious, sudden heart condition usually characterized by varying degrees of chest pain or discomfort, weakness, sweating, nausea, vomiting, and arrhythmias, sometimes causing loss of consciousness. It occurs when the blood supply to a part of the heart is interrupted, causing death and scarring of the local heart tissue.

    I'm out. The change to this site is not user friendly at all, not easy to navigate and the regulars have already left. I have patience so I waited it out a bit longer than most. It doesn't seem the people in charge care much about the complaints at all. I have complained thru the dailystrength facebook page and even though they answer back nothing has changed. I know several others have done this...

I had a visit with my primary physician who said it was probably an allergic reaction to something I ate. I was skeptical since I monitor my diet.  This same scenario continued to happen in June. Primary still insisted it was an allergic...

    Open Heart Surgery and Depression

    3
    MY husband recently had a heart attack and triple bypass surgery. I've heard that "depression" often occurs in the patient after the surgery. I would like to know if the depression occurs in and of itself from the actual surgery, or if the patients experiences this just because he is unhappy because he had the heart attack, etc.?  Thank you,callalily123
