I suffer from high blood pressure and diabetes (type 2) since my heart attack in October 2003. I had a 100% blocked artery and was given a stent in my Left Anterior Descending. I was only 37yrs old when this happened to me suddenly, after having been previously healthy or so I thought. Needless to say I was terrified and developed a debilitating anxiety disorder after all this occured. I had another stent placed in May 2009 while undergoing cardiac catheterization due to recurrent chest pain. They found another 80% blockage and I received a drup eluting stent in the same area Mid LAD. I also have been diagnosed with delayed gastric emptying, major depression, and generalized anxiety disorder. I have moderate to severe joint pain, sciatica, and chronic arthritis.
I forgot to add that I had a TIA a few months ago, due to my poorly controlled blood pressure.
