My dad died of a heart attack. He wasn't in pain (his words) but he was so sick. It's something I never want to see anyone go through again

My father died of a heart attack. He was found dead by the side of the road, he was out on his morning walk, and the coroner ruled massive
Cardiac event. I believe it happened fast because there was a huge contusion on his head where he hit the ground hard.

Everyone experiences symptoms differently, some severe chest pain while others report no check pain but just a feeling of being unwell. The heart foundation have some great info and definitely worth browsing their website. It won’t let me post the link here but google heart foundation Australia to find their website.

Symptoms are different for men and women. Women often complain of tight feeling rather than pain, they describe it like their bra is too tight.
A friend of mine had a heart attack in her mid 30’s she was fit and had no risk factors. Another friend of hers made her go to hospital otherwise she probably wouldn’t have gone. Think her symptoms were like indigestion. Ended up being flown to a larger city hospital for treatment and if she had of stayed home would likely have died, leaving behind 4 beautiful young children, the youngest only a few months old. Her heart attack turned out to be a result of SCAD (spontaneous coronary artery dissection) which affects more women than men. Scad doesn’t discriminate, you can die from scad without having any cardiac risk factors.

If you have any symptoms , even if you’re not sure seek medical advice now . I’ve had 2 heart attacks, they were both different. The first I felt pain and pressure on my chest and also felt nauseous ( lucky I was only 5 minutes from the hospital, my son drove me there) . The 2nd one I woke up at 5 am with bad interguestion and it lasted all day. At 4pm I went to the hospital and after an ecg I was told I probably had a heart attack at about 9am . So everyone I’m guessing is effected in different ways but it’s nothing to be taken lightly.

If you are experiencing any pain or symptoms please present to the nearest emergency Department to be seen and assessed. These types of things should be acted upon quickly
