Patient Comments: Heart Disease - Symptoms

Describe the symptoms associated with your heart disease.

Comment from: Chris, 75 or over Male (Patient) Published: March 11

After doing some heavier than normal work the previous day, I woke up around 2 or 3 AM feeling sickly and sweaty for about 15 minutes but then slowly felt better the next day. I ignored the symptoms and felt good for 2 weeks till the same symptoms occurred again. I called 911, was taken to hospital and had 4 stents put in around my heart veins. That was 4 years ago and am doing fine.
