heart attack

Good day to you,

About a year and a half back I suffered a heart attack at the age of 34 due to stress and cholesterol etc. They implanted a stent, and since everything have been ok.

the last month or so how ever I get tired very easy. It is sometimes so bad that I am out of breath just from climbing a few stairs. Also I had a very disturbing meeting last night and felt very uncomfortable afterwards with pain and a BP of 134 over 116. ( i have a BP measuring machine) my chest now burns and my arm feels sore, almost like before when I had my first attack.

Could I have suffered another heart attack?

Thank you

Dear Lee
Yes it is possible that you had a "silent" heart attack, it is also possible that you are just having angina - but with your history I think it is worth checking this out - at least an ECG and troponin blood test today still if possible?

Worried about you is right, you obviously need to take alot of care due to your history. Your BP was far too high, and cause for concern in itself - the pain in your arms is indicative of a problem even if you havent yet suffered a second heart attack - you must get to your doctor asap.

your Bloodpressure alone should be a cause for concern! please go and see a Doctor a.s.a.p!
