New here...My husband's parents both died of heart attacks. His dad was 65 and his mom was 71. His mom had P.A.T. His dad and mom both had hypertention and cholesterol issues. I am concerned about
my hsuabnd. He isn't on medication. He is 46 yrs old. He has had some BP issues, but nothing "major" per the doctor. it was 134/74 the other day, but 2 weeks ago 144/98 which I thought wa sworth checking into.
Today he was complaining of some chest "pressure that radiated to his shoulder blade area". He is stubborn and wouldn't go to the ER or an urgent care center. I don't know what to do. Would an EKG show anything at a Dr's office tomorrow...(providing something worse doesn't happen later, I know!)...?
Also, we are having some stressful issues....personal things..sorry for TMI..he is a blue collar worker, also...
