Just wondered if anyone else has had this happen....About 2 years ago I was walking into a local restaurant to meet my son and his gf for lunch when I felt a tightness in my chest. No big deal just tight like a muscular thing. I thought it must be from the forward rolls I had done the night before at my first Kung Fu class. Then a weird soreness in my arm...but the day before I'd gotten a flu shot in that arm...that must be it. Sat down and ordered a beer but the feelings wouldn't go away. Mentioned it to my son and his gf and she looked at me like "Are you the dumbest guy in the room?" "Go to the hospital", she said. Oh, what the hell it's only a couple blocks away, I thought. So, I went. At the hospital they said I was having a heart attack. What? I don't have heart attacks. I'm still immortal. So they shipped me off to a major hospital about 1/2 hour away. Had all the tests and, eventually, a consult with a Cardiologist. Here's what he told me:
1. My heart is stronger than normal.
2. I have no blockage.
3. My heart is getting "all the blood it needs."
So, what happened? Apparently I had a "heart spasm." So, "What do I do now?", I asked. "Go home and have a nice life. Yes you can go ride your bike just give it a few days before you start riding again." Then they sent me home with scripts for 5 different meds which almost killed me. (But, that's another story.) Now I take a baby aspirin and 5 mg of Crestor every day and am back to normal. Riding as hard as ever and no signs of a problem. Sound familiar to anyone?
