Awwww I’m so sorry to hear that AND that no one is answering their phones! What awful news to have to deal with. It must be super hard to be away from your Fiance right now! I haven’t heard of that, but i’m glad to hear that it was only minor and that he is home safely. Hopefully they have caught any problem early and can monitor him closely. Do you think it has to do with his height? My Fiance is 6’5 and has really high blood pressure even though he is in excellent shape. Weird.

Hang in there!!! ((((HUGS))))

Oh my gosh, how scary!  Maybe it’s  blessing in disguise–he can get an update on his health situation and learn what things he can do to prevent another one.  Hang in there!

That is really scary. I am glad he is okay. I am sure you will have more answers we he follows up with a cardiologist and his regular physician. That should help you feel less shaken up.

He needs a thorough evaluation for underlying causes as soon as possible.  He may have a familial hypercholesterolemia or some other predisposing factors.   Are they absolutely sure about the diagnosis?  Does he have any known underlying predisposing conditions such as diabetes?

Make sure he asks lots and lots of questions when he goes in for his evaluation.  They should also do some further evaluation on him, and he should write down what they tell him and the results as they can come back so that you can have help translating what happened and why after the fact.

Hope that helps!  I imagine you feel very little control over the situation.  I’m sending good thoughts your way.

I’m so sorry to hear this, but let’s hope he’s okay now!  I wish you and your fiance the best of luck in finding out what’s going on with him!  *Hugs*

Tell your Fiance to ask about Kawasaki disease as well. Not many people know about it yet, but it’s become the number one cause of heart disease in children, and the doctor my mom works for is researching the possible cases of how it might effect people in their 20’s and 30’s – thinking it may be the cause of previously unexplained heart troubles.

I defintely hope he’s okay. ::Hugs!::

My goodness, I’m so sorry! What an awful phone call to get. I’m glad he seems to be fine and that this is on y’all’s radar now so you can make sure he’s 100% healthy.

HUG!

Oh my goodness! i have heard of this happening, but it was usually induced by something else (heat, stress, dehydration) or that person had an underlying condition.

I was having really bad chest pain once and they took me in for an EKG and whatnot, but they said it was probably heartburn Embarassed

I hope they find out what’s wrong!!!
