Thanks Kym for the kind words. I just hope that other people won't be as foolish as I was when I just pasted off my symptoms as muscle spasms. I can't stress this enough, if you have any kind of chest pain, get help. When I was in the hospital, my 39 year old room mate had the same thing going on with him but his symptoms varied in the fact that he only had the chest pain and no arm pain. And today, I found out that the manager of the roofing supply store that I get my materials from, also had a heart attack 3 weeks ago, he's 58 and he had chest and back pain, and like me, he passed off the first chest pains he got the day before his actual attack as spasms also.Kym, I guess now that we hit the 50 mark, it's time to start taking care of ourselves. I don't want to worry anyone, I just want people to be aware. Good health and happiness to you!!
