In November of 2009 I went into cardiac arrest (at the age of 24) and my initial diagnose was broken heart syndrome. The doctor’s don’t know why it happened, all they know is that my left ventricle enlarged, causing my heart to stop. Luckily, my boyfriend was in bed with me (it was about 9pm) and he noticed me breathing funny and took action by calling 911. I’m just wondering if there is anyone else out there who is around my age (or know anyone who is) who had this happen to me. Obviously, there’s more to details to my story and that was just the jist of it.
My cardiologist decided to implant a pacemaker/defibilator in me while I was still in the hospital. Neither one has gone off but I still go get the device checked every 3 months.
