    Any health issues that may have contributed? Weight, diet, exercise, family history etc.?

    Glad you got to a good place and got it handled. I had one at 43 and ended up with quad bypasses so I can relate. Prayers for a complete recovery.

    supposed to prevent plack from building up in arteries and veins , if you don’t take it with a regular aspirin you will wanna be in the er, will make ya think your gonna die.

    There is no age restriction on heart attacks. 1994 I was 43, working way too many hours, had a heart attack at work. 79 days later hadnít slowed down, had a heart attack on the road. Ambulance came out and took me to the nearest hospital. Spent 10 days there.

    Glad you are still here, listen to your cardiologist. I still have a meeting with mine once a year, 27 years after the fact.

    Scary stuff! Glad that you're OK. Heart attacks in one's 40's are often the widow maker.
    Half the world's problems are caused by people not doing their jobs and the other half are caused by people minding someone else's business.
