So I'll try to make a long story as short as possible… Over the last 14 months I have had 3 heart attacks and have been in a handful of times for what felt like another one but they say no. During my last overnight that wasn't a heart attack they decided to do a test I hadn't done yet. It showed a "dead spot" as was explained to me. A week later they had me do a 2 day "viability test" which I included the results page from. Basically from what I understand and they way it was explained to me was that there is nothing they can do and that I should expect to deal with the pain for the rest of my life, however long that might be. Hence why I've sought out another opinion from Mayo but wont have my first appointment for a little more then 3 weeks from now. So i came across this group while looking through the website as the suggested during my appointment call and thought maybe somebody here might have some insight into this since looking around online almost requires a medical degree to understand and my current doctor isn't much help beyond there's nothing he can do for it. I spend most days in pain, like it feels like i'm having another and it's getting old fast. So if anyone has any insights or tips on how to alleviate any of it or tricks or can just explain to me in plain english why i should expect to be in pain everyday just so i can justify it to myself and maybe will help. Guess i don't know what to expect, just a way to vent i suppose cause i know the family is already worried enough and don't want to put more on them.
