How shocking that must have been for you. Scary too. Looking at some changes, challenging. You are young and it sounds like it was mild, so maybe this is a wake-up call. Help you change your life so you can be around for many many more years. (have a hug)

You sure it was a heart attack at the time you dropped?
Are you eating crap from Walmart? GMOs? Monsanto goodness? Smoke? Drink?
Could be a lot of things, but in any case, it's good that you're still alive and telling your story. Eat organic foods and don't go too crazy on the boiled chicken.
I'd like to know what might have led to that incident, I'm kind of close to your age and I'd like to not get to that point myself. Any unusual foods eaten that day you weren't use to?

Hope you didn't get Nurse Diesel!
I do loves me a burger pretty often, but more often than not I cook my meals at home (I like cooking from scratch). I don't smoke or drink, and never have.

Electrolytes are particularly important to the heart, both in the transmission of the signal that maintains heart rate, as well as in the contraction of the cardiac muscle. Certain electrolyte abnormalities can produce irregular heart rhythms, which can cause symptoms of heart disease, including heart or chest pain. The most important electrolytes for heart function are potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium. Read more: www.livestrong.com...
