  • heart attack ?????????

    Hi all, You know how everyone is always talking about heart attack symtoms in women, well are the symtoms any different for those of us ladys with hcm? What are the symtoms anyhow?
    I was just wondering I remember when I was in the hospital one time with atrail fib and everybody (nurse and docs) all said that I should be able to go home and live a normal life and that others with AF don't have many problems, but with me when I'm in AF I can't do anything as far as moving around, I was in to much dicomfort.

    Re: heart attack ?????????

    Hi Jen,

    I had a heart attack in 1989 and thought it was a panic attack. My left arm became inmobile then a crushing pain in my chest and heart. Add in shortness of breath and a classic heart attack they said.

    I generally don't admit this I still say it was a panic attack. That was when I developed a murmur and now here I am with HCM. I do have a family history. Did the heart attack cause the HCM to begin progression? I doubt it. I wasn't dx until 2000.

    Hope I helped
