Would he have been able to walk on the treadmill for a half hour if he was having a heart attack? It was not that fast. 2.5 speed but for him that’s a good speed since he doesn’t exercise a lot. He has had panic attacks in the past just not a lot. He was very stressed about a few things and pretty drunk when this happened. He was almost crying. Eyes tearing, nose completely congested and face red.

His BP was normal (he is on meds for it) and pulse not too high. Like about 85 or 90. He decided to drink some camomile tea and walk on the treadmill for a bit at a slow pace for 20 min and his breathing return to normal and he felt better. I am assuming if it was a heart attack he wouldn’t have been able to go on the treadmill?.
you are probably assuming correctly but in the future a visit to ER might have been a better choice.

My story: about 2 weeks ago I started having a faster than normal heart beat and was getting a little light headed. Like you hubby I was too think headed to do anything about it, until last Sat (not this past Sat, Long story: I did go to ER, had every test imaginable and it was determined it was more a panic attack than anything. I just wish I would have gone sooner instead of worrying for a week or more. I am still having a little trouble, my BP has been on the high said. I will be visiting my cardiologist in about 4 weeks. As it turned out not to be a n emergency it is taking a month of more to get an appointment with him.

Anyway, for those who have chest pains with no particular over exercising over and over: the ER doctor said it normally isn't a heart attack, what you husband experienced and what I did certainly could have been. With that he did stress any chest pain needs to be taken seriously.

True….OTOH, if they're gunna act like a child, maybe you should treat them like a child. Denial can be a killer.


The OP's further, more detailed description of the event sure makes it sound like another panic attack. Of course nothing says an over-weight, out of condition, middle aged guy with a history of panic attacks can't have a heart attack too. ???? When in doubt, check it out.
