A doctor told me you won't have a heart attack at my age unless you have an underlying heart condition, is this true? How do you tell a HA from a PA?

In brief: Young at heart!!

Your doctor is right.
.. Chances of HA at your age is low. Happens in patients who abuse drugs- esp. cocaine. You don't smoke and if you don't have jeuvenille diabetes it is very low. Chances of PA is high given multiple stresses in one's life esp when young worried about job, money, boy friend, family etc.. Best Wishes.
