Hi. I'm new here along with others have read a lot of posts that are helpful. I had my wake up call New Years day 2014. I had changed my diet a few years back since my hubby was diagnosed with diabetes. I thought I was eating right my last cholesterol test was better than any other times but still needed to come down. I was a smoker until I went to the ER I had all the full classic symptoms left arm, vomiting, chest pain cold sweat couldn't think that at 50 I had a heart attack. I got a stent at 99% blockage with 2 others at 70 and 50 blockage. Is it normal to be so tired?

I am sorry to hear of your cardiac problems however please sit down with your Dr. or one of the Cardiac Nurses to learn all you can re your dx and treatment.
Each person is unique to their own disease and your biggest life change will be to stop smoking.
Fatigue is a distinct characteristic of cardiovascular disease in women;  in one study of 515 female heart attack survivors, 70 percent reported unusual fatigue in the weeks before their attacks. If you have heart disease you heart is not pumping effectively and therefore your body is not getting the oxygen it needs = fatigue.
Do stay in touch with your Dr.
