Symptoms

I am asking this on behalf of my mum. At the age of 37, she suffered a heart attack (her symptoms weren't like normal ones- tingling shooting pains in her arms and severe headaches which lasted for days) which lead to a quadruple heart bypass and a double bypass 18 months later. She has angina, and takes a ridiculous amount of medication. Just lately she has been having constant headaches and tiredness and i'm worried that these are symptoms of something greater forming, i.e. leading to another attack or something much worse. Every now and again she misses her evening medication, so maybe this is the cause. I don't know, but all i know is its getting worse and worse. She also has crohn's and an ileostomy, but i don't think they are the cause.
If you could help that would be great!

I would personally get her to a Cardiologist to be checked over. Missing the occasional dose of medication won't hurt, most of us do it. I would have her checked out in case one of the bypass conduits has closed or a new blockage has formed. I doubt if they will be looking at bypass surgery again, most likely stents now.
