thank you for sharing
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I am so glad yours was a false alarm and I am very sorry for the loss of your friend.Originally Posted by Catherine Marie
But I have to stress to everyone...."Please don't let the doctors ignore it either." My sister had been having the funny feelings and outright pain for about a week with 2 visits to the ER. Both times they never even checked her heart or even suggested it. She was at the hospital the night before her death and was on her way to the hospital again the next night, but didn't make it.
We have a large painful hole in our family also. She has 3 kids that really miss and need her too.
I wish you would have posted this in Feb. I had a stroke in March, so many things you said have hit home. I was very lucky that my stroke was minor and I am almost back to normal. I hope everyone who reads this will follow everything you said. Thank you so much

This has been enlightening to read of everyone's close calls and I feel so sorry to hear of all those who have lost loved ones --
believe me, all the Dr's and Nurses would rather you come in with a false alarm than not at all. Better safe than sorry.
I just recently asked questions about heart attack survivors. I hadn't read this post. Thanks so much.
I just wasn't feeling well but I couldn't put my finger on what was wrong. I had my husband drive me to Urgent Care. Well, they would not acept my insurance. I went to 3 care centers. The one that did, said I should have an EKG. After a few seconds of being hooked up, she said you are having a heart attack. An ambulance showed up almost before she finished her sentence. I was carried out into an ambulance and taken to the ER of the hospital, which was only 1 block away. I never thought to go to the ER right away. Within 45 minutes I was in the ER and they input 2 stents.
I was preped, introduced to the Dr.who explained the procdure. For some reason I was very calm. I don't think my mind understood what was happening. About a wk after being released from the hospital I had respiratory failure. This time I was having problems getting a deep breathe, my husband wanted to drive me to the hospital but I told him to call an ambulance. hat was worse than the HA. I panicked and had to be restrained and they ended up have to put the tube down my throat. When I awoke I didn't know what had happened. My husband says I don't want to know.
So, if you have problems, don't wait. go to the Dr or to the ER.

I am glad for you that everything worked out well
That should be investigated. They needed to make sure the patient was stable first then transport to another hospital if need be. Insurance companies will work with out of network hospitals in emergency situations.Originally Posted by LittleMo
Thank you for this. This is something too few of us are aware of, and this knowledge could save someone's life.
