I'm a 54 year old female who just had a stint put in less then a week ago. I was exercising for 45 minutes and couldn't get my breathing under control, and couldn't stop sweating either. Then I started having pressure in my chest, throat, jaws, ears, and both arms. I thought it was a severe case of indigestion or heart burn. I never thought was having a heart attack, but I was! I never had chest pains, I exercised weekly, and took my cholesterol meds. I smoked for 35 years, and quit 3 years ago and never felt better. Within 48 hours of the heart attack I had a stint put in at the main artery to the heart. It was 99.9% blockage. I was scared then, and scared now. I hope I can get past it to exercise again. That is the one thing that scares me the most. I'm so scared to exercise again. I'm going to do the cadio rehab my DR wants me to , so I hope I can really get past this , because I'm only 54.
