Consult with his MD: It would be best to consult with your husband's physicians to determine if he suffered a cardiac event. There is not enough information to provide a beneficial response.

A 35-year-old member asked:

I've had one heart attack, am I more susceptible for another one?

Dr. George Kinzfogl
Internal Medicine 23 years experience
Yes: Anyone who has had a heart attack is at increased risk for another one, relative to someone who has never had a heart attack. Controlling blood pressure, cholesterol medications, blood thinners such as Aspirin are medications that can reduce the risk of future heart attack. A healthy diet and regular exercise (150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise) are also very important.

Get seen together: This is something for your family physician. This may be an emotional reaction, brain damage from something that happened during the heart attack, or the onset of brain disease or tumor. You will need to use your diplomacy and skills to get him seen. I am sorry this is happening and wish you luck and better health to him.
