I Had A Heart Attack at 4:00 am - A True Life Story

I was having a Heart Attack and I did not know it was a heart attack going on inside me. I thought it was a muscle pain about it. This is a True Life Story. It was 4:00 am in the morning and I had just woken up to relieve myself. That is when I realized that there is some pain in my chest as if someone is pressing a small coin in the center of my chest, on top and center of my sternum.

I went to the wash room and lay back on my bed. But the pain, rather I would say a small discomfort remained. I tried to turn to the sides, turned on my stomach, sat up, stood on all four limbs, tried to walk a little inside the room and what not. But the discomfort just won’t go away, whatever I do. The coin remained pressed on top of my skin, at least, that was the sort of feeling I was having. I was sweating for about 45 minutes.

Then I got used to the discomfort of a heart attack fairly quickly, but failed to get even a wink of sleep from the time I woke up at 4:00 am. I saw the clock go slowly past 5:00 am. Then at 6:00 am my wife woke up and went about her work at home as usual. I lay there keeping the chest pain to myself. I did not tell my wife anything. By 6:25 am, I realized that I won’t be able to sleep and decided to get up from the bed. The coin pressing discomfort on my chest just stayed there.

My Aircraft Caught Fire - A True Life Story
  

This is a True Story. Till the time the Cardiologist showed me on the screen during my angioplasty that one of my Coronary Artery is Blocked completely and the Dye is not going beyond a certain point physically, I was strongly believing that I was having a muscle pain which was induced by the vigorous dumbbel exercise I had done the previous two days. I was about to lose my life in a few hours. I was not going to live more than a couple of hours and Yet I was unaware that I was actually going through a heart attack.
