Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

2 SCADs in 16 months

September 19, 2017

In May 2016 I had a heart event that was diagnosed Tako Tsubo cardiomyopathy. On Aug 24, 2017 I had another heart attack with severe chest pain and pain down both arms. I was out for a short walk when this occurred. I quickly walked back to the Health Center where I work and the ambulance was called and I was taken to hospital. The angiogram indicated SCAD and also showed scare of previous SCAD in May 2016 that was now healed. This is very scary but am thankful that God is there for me and my hope is in Him.
I will probably go to cardiac rehab to help me know my limits.
