I'm 39 a mother of 1, been single for 5 yrs. I have loved 4 many yrs and I have lost, is it normally not to ever get involved again. Am a happy person.

Normal vs. Abnormal?: It is common to feel hesitant to get back into a romantic relationship if there has been hurt and loss as a result of past relationships. I believe the question should not necessarily be if it is normal or not to choose not to get involved, but instead, to ask what are the pros and cons of avoiding relationships for now. You can always change your mind at a future time. ...Read more

There: There are not many symptoms listed here. If she already has a cardiac history with severe chest pain and inability to move; I would recommend (based on limited facts) calling 911.


Symptoms of a heart attack can include: chest pain; chest tightness or squeezing; shortness of breath, increased sweating pain or numbness radiating down the arm (more often left than right) and nausea. Some people dismiss the pain thinking it is indigestion. There can be pain in the top midline of the abdomen, as well as vomiting. Pain may not present in the chest but instead can be felt in the upper back, head, jaw or in the teeth. There may be a generalized feeling of unwellness and fatigue. One fourth of people have heart attacks without chest pain. ...Read more
