Go Red For Women ™ presents: ‘Just a Little Heart Attack’


– It started out like
a totally normal day. (ringing) (buzzing) (meowing) (beeping) – [Voiceover] Mom! – Okay, move objection
deadline to the third line after survey.
(child talking) Oh honey, for (mumbles)
always use the verb “estar”. What are you doing down there? Did you finish your breakfast? Don’t hit your brother.
(laughter) Honey, you have to eat something. Here. Okay, five minutes to car pool. Where’s my coffee? – You okay, mom?
– Oh, I’m fine. Sandwich orders, what do you want? – Almond butter and jelly.
– Spaghetti. (groaning) – You sure you’re okay?
– I’m fine, sweetie. – I am so late. Hey buddy, how you doing? Hey honey. You okay? – Huh? Yeah, I’m fine.
– You sure? – Oh yeah, yeah. – Asahi, my favorite. See you guys later. – [Son] Bye, daddy. – Where are your shoes? Put
your shoes back on please. You know, go help your sister.
(phone ringing) We’re going in three minutes. Oh my God. What am I doing? I forgot to cut off the crust. Voila! Shoes on, potty if you need it. Honey, get your sister. Get her…
– [Son] Are you sure… (shattering)
– Nobody move! I’m getting a dustpan. (banging) – Mom! I think you’re having a heart attack. – Honey, do I look like
the type of person who has a heart attack? I’m just gonna sit down. (groaning) I’m totally fine. Don’t forget to wear the high
socks with the shin guards. – Forget about the shin guards, mom. (honking) – Come on, Mrs. Ananag is not gonna wait. (horn) Woah. Okay. 911. (ringing) Hi, sorry to bother you. I think I might be having a
little heart attack. (laughs) Nothing really, just some nausea, tightening of the jaw,
dizziness, shortness of breath, muscle pain, achiness, this
terrible pressure in my chest. Oh really? They can be here in how long? Two minutes? Can you make it ten? I thought I had gas. Turns out I was having a heart attack. Heart disease is the number
one killer of American women. Now, I take care of my
heart and tell the women in my life to do the same.
– Sounds great by the way. – That’s nice sweetie,
but that’s not my heart. That is. Make it your mission to save
your life, and the lives of the women you love. Find out more from the

  1. I love this! No one thinks young women have heart attacks but they do! I know 30 years olds that have. This lifestyle is that of my daughter and women never pay attention to the symptoms they are having. This sends the message home. Kudos Elizabeth.

  2. Gentlemen with the gender comments…understand that women's symptoms are different from men's and are more easily ignored by the women in the process of having the heart attack.  This is why the focus is on the women's symptom's – research for heart patients (men mostly) has been happening for much longer and are well recognized by all.  Thanks for understanding!

  3. I am a young 55, vegetarian, general good health but have a dismal family history of heart disease.  I ended up with 70% blockage in my LAD (the widowmaker) and angioplasty and a stent saved my life.  My symptoms, unfortunately were ignored and blamed on 'menopause' and stress for almost two years….I went to the ER twice for shortness of breath, constant sweating, chest tightness and shoulder pain….both times I was sent home with diagnosis like osteoporosis in the cervical spine, asthma and the most common FEMALE junk diagnosis…stress.  I finally got a cardiologist to listen to me…sister DEAD at 60, brother DEAD at 55….he did a CAT angio and within 20 minutes of the test everyone was scrambling.  WOMEN DO FACE HURDLES MEN DO NOT when it comes to heart disease

  4. People laugh- but this is EXACTLY what happens when women have a heart attack- we deny anything is wrong and put everyone else before ourselves and tell ourselves that we can't go the hospital because the dishes won't get done or the kids need to get to school,.etc..  We "don't want to bother anyone" and it causes the unnecessary death of the most important family member YOU !!    Don't take chances the dishes and chores can wait.  Get to the ER if you feel any symptoms. 

  5. My mom had a stroke and a heart attack at the age of 50 and died because I didn't know the symptoms of a mini stroke (it was the 80's and we didn't have iphones or the internet) If I had only known that "baby talk" was a sign of a mini stroke- she might have survived.  Don't let your loved ones die because you didn't have the information to save their lives.  Men and women are having heart attacks at younger ages and my husband has had 3 – (he's only 45)  Learn as much as you can and call 911 at the first sign of trouble.  You don't want to live with this type of guilt- trust me. ( I was only 17 at the time- but all schools should teach basic EMT classes to everyone as a prerequisite for HS graduation).

  6. Very very well done!  I need to post this on Facebook.  Elizabeth does a great job at representing all the busy moms out there! 

  7. I watched this video while I was apparently having a silent heart attack…..getting my husband off to work for graveyard shift, helping my son with homework, trying to get the older brothers to stop fighting, and make dinner. While I was making up new menus for our restaurant, which I had cleaned at all day.  I goggled signs of a female heart attack read them all watched this video,decided I only had slight pain in my chest, a little nausea, and aching in my ribs in my back on the left side, so I took a baby asprin  for good measure.  Got my hubby gone, dinner over and told the boys I was going to bed.  Slept all night felt better the next day,but not great went to my regular nurse practitioner she ordered tests did an echo and asked me when did I have a heart attack so I went back in my search history to find out…..crazy stuff  

  8. An Australian Woman Publisher, Had This To Say To Men Who Are Suffering, Experts fear obesity, poor diet and lack of exercise may be the reason for a slowing decline in heart disease deaths for men that are middle-aged Australians.

  9. There is NOT a symptom of a heart attack which women experience which men do not ALSO experience. The idea that women's symptoms are "different" is just another manifestation of the narcissism which women have developed about themselves. And while it may be true that women die of heart attacks at about the same rate, men die on average 8-10 years EARLIER. Women have 5-7 years of life more than men do and yet they still want to widen the gap further. Disgusting.

  10. I like to ask why doe's it matter if it male or female men actuly have worst prob stasisticaly them women so why A go red for women month an is that A female collor to now what the fuck can men wear any more grey an brown an orther dull collor any collor pink yellow red purple any thing that sid alive now is A female color? 

  11. first it A breast cancer month somthing A obvious discrimination against men who get the same desiese but oh well women get it more now it women heart desise month this is obvious sexism. 

  12. Awesome video!!!  Thanks for all the hard work that went into putting this message together.  I hope that it will influence change and encourage women not to self-nurture last with such habitual zeal!  I think that this is a touching short film that accurately informs viewers of the symptoms and realities of an attack in a funny and compassionate way.  Having lost my paternal Nanna to the double-whammy of heart disease and diabetes, I'm really grateful for your educational materials and the Go-Red campaign.  Good-on-ya-Ladies; and all the gents standing strong for the cause!  Now if we could just sort out Universal Socialized Healthcare for our planet, then perhaps preventive screening could save millions of men and women from the irreversible reality of heart disease!  93!

  13. Watching this video, and yes, arguing with the sad little trolls below about the video's necessity, saved my life. I had a heart attack Thursday morning and had I not watched this video, I may not have called 911. Thank you AMA for the Go Red for Women Campaign! Thank you Elizabeth Banks for being in the video. Thank you sad little trolls – for just you being you.

  14. Thanks for the film, just 2 days ago I had a mild heart attack and had no idea what was happening to me but since I could not breath and was in pain I called 911. Never thought an Aspirin would save my life.  Thanks again!

  15. Yeah, I love the way her family just walks out on her — especially the kid who simply hands her the phone with a list of warning signs on the screen. Believe me, when you're lying on the floor having a heart attack, it's too late to read a list of warning signs! CALL 9-1-1!!! If you don't take your own health seriously, your family members won't, either.

  16. This is important! More women die every year in the United State is cardiovascular disease than men, a fact that is largely unknown (Urden, Stacy, & Lough, 2012, p. 192). Above 75 years of age the presence of coronary artery disease is higher in women then for men.  Mortality rates for women after an acute MI are higher than for men : 38% to 25% (p. 188). There are many reasons for why more women die than men from CAD and cardiovascular disease, being that women experience acute MI and symptoms differently  – not typically the bone crushing chest pain that is typically advertised. Also they may delay medical care, and develop less collateral circulation than men. It's important for people to be aware that cardiovascular disease "represents more deaths than the next seven fatal disease for women combined" (188). Often people think breast cancer is the most fearful of diseases, but we need to start thinking about heart health as women and as a nation all together! 

  17. The reason why heart disease/heart attacks kill more women then men is because women have different symptoms. Men get chest pain, and women do to, but the chest pain isn't as severe in women than it is in men- and because women think they're not having a heart attack, they won't call 911.

  18. I read most of these comments, and I have to say that some people sound like they don't know much about heart disease.
    People can exercise, eat healthy, and be at a healthy weight, yet still end up with heart disease. I know people that are obese but never had heart disease not once.
    Eating healthy and staying active can lower your risk. And if it runs in the family, you have a higher chance of getting it.

    I have anxiety, so I've been to the ER several times because I thought I was having a heart attack. They did EKG's and each time they were normal.
    People with anxiety also get shortness of breath, chest pain, and dizziness, so it's easy to confuse the two.

    It's better to go to the ER and be told it's not a heart attack then not go and die.
    Better to be safe than sorry!!

  19. What a great video. My whole family watched it with me.  We all laughed and then had a great conversation about it!  Thanks for posting!

  20. yep, at 4am I let the dogs out, packed up a small bag for the hospital, made the bed, then walked to a neighbor to ask for an ambulance. Back at my house I told the neighbor which dogs get which food and meds and how to lock up the house, before leaving with the EMTs midway through the heart attack.

  21. Good film but I've gotta tell you–kid hands Mom the phone and walks on out the door?  Ok, tells Mom she's having a heart attack, but goes on his merry little way.  

  22. Thank you for raising awareness for women's heart health and heart attack symptoms with this video. Many women do experience heart attack symptoms differently from men, and because of this, they don't seek immediate help.

    But what if we seek immediate help, but our concerns are ignored? I think our doctors may think our symptoms are not heart-related, but stress-related or anxiety-related. Or they may blame it on acid reflux or maybe even menopause. We may even dismiss the heart attack symptoms ourselves because they are not what we would expect.

    I think the problem is getting our family doctors and those in the urgent care and ER to listen to us, and getting insurance companies to cover necessary medical tests to diagnose cardiac problems. I began having sudden burning, squeezing chest pains, numbness and pain in my left arm and hand, and shortness of breath at the beginning of January. I called my family doctor, and he had me come in for an EKG, which came back normal. But then I have also found out later that EKG's correctly detect only 30% of heart attack events. 70% of heart attacks, unless they are massive or fatal, go undetected by EKG!!!! That's not very reliable! My blood pressure was 158/108 initially, but was borderline normal later, so I could chalk that up to anxiety. And I was anxious, hoping this wasn't a heart attack. But I have had some not so great blood pressure and pulse readings that I have taken at home. My doctor said to me because I am only 41, and have had no history of heart disease in my family, he didn't think it was heart related. He said it's probably my acid reflux. My doctor ordered a nuclear stress test, which I just found out the insurer has denied coverage for, saying it's medically unnecessary because of my age and lack of family history. I guess my symptoms weren't a factor in their decision. Since then, I continue to have these symptoms, which come and go, plus now I feel pain in my upper back and every so often a slightly upset stomach. I have also been retaining fluid big time. The last time I was able to get my ring off my finger was before Thanksgiving. Since then, my fingers have been swollen, and in the wintertime, my rings are usually loose. My belly has swelled up so much, I look like I am 9 month's pregnant, and I am definitely not prego. My clothes are getting so tight, they cannot get any tighter. The only symptoms I have never had are dizziness and sweating. Today, I was out shopping at Sam's Club and Costco's with my husband and mother-in-law, and I suddenly felt this strange tingling and numbness down my left arm into my hand that lasted for hours. I also had the tight feelings in my chest and some shortness of breath that would come and go. I chewed two 325mg aspirin twice today to try to keep me from having symptoms while I was out and about with my family. We had a fun day planned, and I didn't want any problems, but I had problems nonetheless.

    It sucks when doctors don't completely believe you, and insurance companies deny coverage. They make you feel like you're a paranoid hypochondriac.

    Now what do I do?

  23. 33 days ago I saw this video and I was thinking,no way I was having a heart attack I was checking for symptoms because I was not feeling too good ,I even clean the house took a shower them I was so dizzy I felt I get up with shampoo still on my hair I drove Myself to hospital just 5 blocks down, did not call the rescue (next door to me Fireman are right there) when I got to hospital they admitted me give me so many test and medicine I stay there 3 days and now I need to see my cardiologist on a regular basis Why did I do not listen to my body??? It gives me so many signs that I was sick : #1,my pain in the left mandible ! that was odd,#2 heartburn I never have that before,#3 shoulder pain and neck like I was carrying 50 pounds,#4 sharp pain in my left arm from my elbow to my fingers ,#5 sweating  a lot ( I never do even when I am running ) #6 nausea #7 feeling dizzy# 8 shortness of breast I was coughing a lot!! Thankssssssssssss this video help me realize I was totally in denial and save my life! Thank you so much! A mother never thinks she will be sick! 

  24. @Jorge Gonzales It's not to take away from men at all. But for quite some time, heart disease has been identified as an affliction that affects mostly men. But, alas, it affects women as well. Hell, it's the #1 killer of both men AND women. This PSA focuses on symptoms of a heart attack in women. They are NOT the same as they are for men. No need to take offense. We ALL need to protect our hearts. No need for C-bombs.

  25. +Jorge Gonzales So you're just trolling YouTube? You're trying to get people, particularly women, angry? I don't comprehend why anyone would do that, unless this is some unofficial social experiment you're conducting. Look, I'm not going to call you names or anything like that, because that's probably for which you're seeking. Also, that's not my style. But if you REALLY do feel this way and are a misogynist, then by all means, the comments section for a video about women's heart health isn't the place to be. There are forums for that. Go share them there. But, Jorge, just…go grab some chill, man. And again, take care of yourself. Life is waaay too short for this kind of foolery.

  26. Guys, just because something isn't gender neutral, that doesn't mean it's sexist. Women's  #heartdisease  is a unique issue in that heart disease is still largely seen as a male disease — even in the medical world — and women complaining of heart symptoms are still often written off as hysterical females.

    Women also routinely put themselves last. Don't knock #goredforwomen . It's an important campaign. Thank you @OfficialGoRed4Women. 

  27. That's pretty much how it happened for me. Know the signs and don't be afraid of "bothering" someone with a false alarm. Call 911 if you have the symptoms. This video shows pain in her arm, but it may not be in the arm. It may be in the back, jaw, neck, shoulder, chest, etc. You are important, call 911 right away if you are having symptoms. Heart attacks kill. Don't be a statistic. I'm only 43 and I had zero risk factors.

  28. Could this video be more biased ?
    – Poor woman taking care of children…
    – Husband having the good life, not doing anything not even capable of seing his women has an attack…
    – Husband being an idiot who just want to touch boobies…
    Stop this "Women = oppressed" shit.
    "Heart deseases" is n1 female killer ?
    Guess what "heart deaseases" is n1 male killer too…
    AND IT KILLS  NEARLY 2X MORE MEN THAN WOMEN
    But where is the gendered commercial for men ? 

    sources: http://kff.org/other/state-indicator/heart-disease-death-rate-by-gender/

  29. yes, I know this is a very serious matter and it shouldn't be joked about or seem funny, but I laughed really hard..

  30. I could care less what y'all are arguing about. I just want to say Elizabeth is totally cute. I never thought having a heart attack could be cute? But she managed to pull that off. lol

  31. I had a heart attack two days ago. I was riding my bike when I started having symptoms similar to the woman in this video. I finished my ride and tried to shake it off, just like this woman. I'd seen this video a few years ago and it came to mind. I couldn't believe I was having a heart attack. I'm a healthy, active person with very low blood pressure and excellent cholesterol readings. I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs. My only risk factor is that I was under a lot of stress. Anyhow, I had my husband take me to the hospital (though we should have called 911) and it turned out I was having a heart attack. I was treated right away and I'm recovering nicely. Thank you, Elizabeth Banks, for saving my life!

  32. It's quite appalling to see how many men have decided that GoRed is sexist simply because it is sending a direct message to women about heart disease and how to recognize the symptoms of a heart attack. The world already knows that heart disease kills many men. We have known this for years and we have all seen segments on the news about heart disease prevention for men and commercials. We have seen advertisements from Bayer about saving a man's life by giving them Bayer aspirin when they experience chest pain and experience other symptoms. I'm pretty sure everyone on the universe knows that heart disease is a huge issue for me. The question is: Does the world know how heart disease affects women? Do most women know the signs of a heart attack? Will they know when it's time to go to the doctor or call for an ambulance? NO. I can assure you that many women do not know what symptoms they should associate with a heart attack?

    Because men and women typically experience different symptoms when having a heart attack, GoRed thinks it is important for women to know what those differences are and how to get help when it happens. How is that sexist? Just because something is targeted to a specific population doesn't mean it is discriminating against the other populations it is not intending to reach. My grandmother didn't know she had heart disease, unlike my grandfather who knew exactly when he was having a heart attack and when he needed help. The reason being, there was never a huge public discussion about what heart disease is like in women. Is there something wrong with an organization trying to share knowledge with a group of people who are less informed about a topic because the information they have always been fed was based upon the symptoms of a different sex? In most women, the symptoms are more obscure and they often do not realize they are having a heart attack. Is that not disconcerting to you? Do you seriously not think this is a serious issue? They are in no way belittling the experience of me who have heart attacks or saying that heart disease is an issue that only or primarily affects women because it's not. They are simply saying that it is a serious issue for women and these women need to be informed because this knowledge could save womens' lives. And it has. There are people who have seen this video and, because of having seen it, have decided to call an ambulance instead of assuming their symptoms are related to something else or are trivial to some extent.

    You cannot reasonably say that because this information is being directed towards women, that it is sexist. If both men and women were equally as informed of the way heart disease manifests in their bodies, then the need for targeted information like this wouldn't be necessary. However, that is not the case. Women can be having a heart attack without even feeling severe chest pain, which means the severity of the attack may commonly go by unnoticed, thereby leaving the problem untreated and much more likely to result in a fatality. There should be just as much awareness about heart disease directed towards men as there is for women because of how affected both sexes are by this disease. That does not, however, mean that information cannot be directed specifically to men or specifically to women if it is likely to save more lives and improve awareness about the disease.

  33. We thought I was suffering from an ulcer or bad gas…. NOPE, my heart was failing. Took weeks to figure out… and I was in the hospital for 60 hours before they decided to look at the possibility that it was my heart. We were all stunned! I had been showing little symptoms for years, but no one thinks to look into heart conditions in women under 20!

  34. Much truth is said in jest. As a retired paramedic, I knew what to look for in others. I never thought I'd be in the same boat at 49. And on my birthday. You can say what you want about this video, but if it made you think, great. That's a start.

  35. This looks an awful lot like a Stepford wife having a malfunction. "would you like another cup of coffee? would you like another cup of coffee?"

  36. Excellent Video! I just went in for a heart catheter test based on extremely high blood pressure and other symptoms. Thank you American Heart Association. I was able to get info from your site that prompted me to see my doctor, then a cardiologist & to take precautions. All is well now & BTW, I would not leave for stress-test until I finished the laundry and my work! I run 5-6 miles a day and swim 3 miles a week. Couldn't believe this was happening to me. Will strongly recommend this video to all on SM channels my company monitors.

  37. This warning is for all my sisters in cyberspace. I had my first heart attack in college. Heart failure runs in my family, my beautiful younger sister suffers from it. Take care of yourself girls and listen to your body!

  38. I had my first heart attack at 35, and it was ridiculously similar to this little skit. Then I had four more heart attacks over the next 22 years, and a triple bypass less than 8 weeks ago.

    If you even THINK you "might be" having a heart attack, dial 911 (or whatever your emergency number is). Unlock your front door, if possible, sit down, and chew an aspirin while you're waiting for the paramedics. SURVIVE!

  39. I too thought I was having a heart attack the other day. It turns out I was just holding in a nasty fart. I was in public so I didn't want to let it rip. When I got home so much pressure had built up that I thought I was having a heart attack. When I finally let it out I felt so much better. Also, during sex while typing this comment I thought another heart attack was on the horizon. Turns out… I was just on the verge of a wicked orgasm.

  40. This was an awesome reenactment of showing the signs of a heart attack! I think I may have had a little one before have to pay attention closer. Thank you for doing this Ms.Banks!

  41. Check out our infographic about heart attack symptoms in women vs. men: https://www.providence.org/blog/2017/02/heart-attack-might-feel-different-for-women

  42. I really can't believe that I live in a society that is so feminist that they have to segregate messages about heart disease. I came into work today to see women parading with posters about women and heart disease, without a single word about men's health. I had to look it up.

    Heart disease effects men and women equally, according to the American heart association.

    I understand it is the stance of GoRed to make women aware that it "is not only a man's issue", but by segregating every sign, message, and video to address women, is too much. The posters at work say, "heart disease kills one woman every 80 seconds"….

    How quick would I be fired if I put up a sign that said "one man?!

    A proper sign would say "heart disease claims one life every 80 seconds. Both men and women are equally at risk."

    Also, the bit at the end where the man can't help but grope tits just screams feminism. Remember, third wave feminism says that all men are rapists and should be castrated.

  43. The part where the kids walk out the door, leaving their mother laying on the floor in the throes of a heart attack cracks me up every time.

  44. In July 2016 I went to stand up and couldn't breath. I tried a couple more times and just couldn't catch my breath. I grabbed my mom's blood pressure machine and saw it reading over 200. So I figured I was doing it wrong and tried it again and again it was over 200. So I googled warning signs of heart attack and ran across THIS VIDEO. To this day I credit this video with saving my life. There were several gestures in this video that struck a nerve with me….like those hot flashes (turns out those weren't hot flashes, but warning signs of heart failure)….or the twinge of pain in the shoulder blades (I had gone to my doctor thinking I had arthritis)….popping a couple aspirin/tylenol…..and ohhh that heartburn….must've been something I ate!!! Yeah, this video saved my life. Turns out I was having a heart attack after all, and an ambulance ride and a helicopter trip resulted in a couple of stints in my heart. I will continue to share this video with everyone I know because the symptoms for women is OH SO SUBTLE. Ladies, if in doubt, don't wait. Get it checked out. And share this video. You never know who's life you might save!! <3

  45. A little over 2 years ago I had been feeling off for a few days with a fever, body aches and a bit of a cough, although I felt sick it was not alarming. My grandson, whom I raised, woke me up because I was sleeping through the morning alarm clock, which I never did. I couldn't get out of bed by myself, feeling like I needed to go to the bathroom badly, so I had him pull my arm at a 3 count which he did and it got me out of bed (he is very strong – NOW he is 6ft tall and all muscle in 8th grade!). Standing, I started toward the bathroom. I took about 8 steps then blacked out. Little did I know I lost control of my bodily functions.

    Although he was 12 years old and a straight A student, he got me to 'come to' for a couple of minutes. He asked if he should call 911. I told him "no" and that I just needed to sit up for a bit. When I couldn't, I did not understand what was happening to me and said, "well this is stupid. I just need to sit up". When I could not and did not realize I was in a large puddle of body fluids, I then blacked out and do not remember anything after that.

    He then called 911 because I couldn't instruct him. He trusted my judgment. I did not wake up again for about 12 hours in a hospital room with double pneumonia. I was in the hospital for 11 days. Now the bottom parts of my lungs are dead, permanently.

    The police came before the ambulance. My grandson told me how the police thought it was a drug overdose and I was incapable to raise children. They tried to get me to change my own clothes, but I do not remember any of it. He said they moved me around the house in various chairs and the couch. I was told the police were in my home almost an hour, searching my home for drugs. I do not use illegal drugs, only my prescriptions as prescribed. My grandson told them I had been unusually ill for about a week. I thought it was the flu, although I had a flu shot 2 months previously.

    Finally, the hospital did xrays and told the police, who were still in my home, that I had double pneumonia aka bilateral pneumonia. Only then did they let my grandson lock up the house and they drove him to school. The only thing I remember was my quote above, feeling stupid because I could sit up. The lack of oxygen overruled common sense.

    The police didn't even know what to do. If my grandson had not there I probably would have died. Still, he wanted to do the right thing instead of taking it on himself to decide. I'm disabled and have been all of his life. He was used to seeing me sick and in constant pain. But this was a different matter entirely. I didn't know what was happening to me either.

    My poor grandson had been so scared to find the Nana who raised him in such a condition, watching me fall to the floor. He was traumatized for a long time. He learned a tough lesson that day – to trust his instincts if something isn't right. Although my daughter took him to live in another state a few months later, he still calls me at least 3 days a week to make sure I am alright. So do my other 3 grandchildren (1-2 times a week).

    When my daughter took them away, the kids wrote me a list of food I am 'not allowed' to eat. I tend to choke on food often. So sweet of them for looking out for me. We all learned a tough lesson that day.

    I hope this little remembrance helps someone who reads it here.

  46. 10 year old boys are doctors. Next thing you know it'll be 8 year old girls making medical diagnoses

  47. All this plus dizzy dizziness and tingling down the front of your body right? 30 minutes until ambulance can reach my home I can barely type type is

  48. My head feelš light, don't know if I should call my parent's wouldn't take me seriously if I asked
    . It could just be a random crying attack. I am on my period and dealing with some emotional anxiety … aka stress of life. My throat now tingles too … But im calming my breathing and think I will be fine. My hands are a skaky

  49. Okay another small attack just happened after I calmed down from the first message a a sec ago. Glad for auto correct my phone my may die. Tingling lin both arms mostly left. Chest really hurts

  50. Alright, I'm okay now. Hands a little shaky and completely numb, but my chest only hurts a little and my breathing is normal again

  51. Great video! I have been to the ER with heart attack scares that turned out to be reflux issues, but better safe than sorry! But uh… the kids just left their mom there to die?? Call 911 dammit don't just pull up a page and expect me READ while I'm having a heart attack??!!! Lol

  52. My advice based on my experience when I was raising children and working full time and working out and “doing it all” – go to bed a little earlier, get up early, and give yourself an hour before everyone else is up to meditate, do spiritual readings, and get yourself ready and fed for the day before helping your family with their mornings. You will come to love that time of taking care of yourself first. Greatly reduces the stress. My children are grown and gone now, and there is a family history of heart attacks, but at 57 so far so good.

  53. As a 4x heart attack survivor caused by SCAD I must say this is spot on. I had a newborn in NICU who id spent hours with, went home and washed up, did yoga to try and ease the agony which I’d been told was anxiety. Ate a whole box of Zantac and 6 tablets of Valium as I had a feeling of impending doom. Doctors had dismissed it as me being too young so definitely anxiety. But an ambulance confirmed a 7mm STEMI the worst they’ve ever seen. I’m now stuck with a defib and waiting for a new heart because I didn’t push them more and demand answers. So this for me, is so accurate it’s terrifying. Women are known not to complain as much. Never ignore your body. It’s the best warning sign you’ll ever get.

  54. i am going insane trying to figure out if i need to give a shit and call 911 or just stop being a hypochondriac about this weird chest pain, i've got no other symptoms and my arm hurts but i also have a flu, and have been coughing and my whole body's been achy all week, googling is leading me no where. fuck! fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fcuk fuck.

  55. Life of a Mom.. Holy crap! We never know when to stop to breath… Appreciate your Mom always. We kick butt, take names, and start our day over again. Same routine, different day. ♥ 👩‍👧 ♥
