    my son had some kind of heart attack last night

    He's only 22, ....does anyone have any experience with this kind of situation in one so young?

    I know the boy is still in shock and and unnerved at the moment. Im trying to give him encouragement and everything but worried about his impulsive decisions whilst being treated for it last night.
    He says he's goung to give up school and his apprenticeship.that he hates the city and wants to come back and live "a chilled" life in the country again.
    Im really worried because he's still a bit shaken by the incident and what happened at the hospital.

    I haven't, but I'm distressed to hear he has a problem like that. Unlike most diseases I would expect medical intervention will put matters back to normal, I do hope that's what you find.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: my son had some kind of heart attack last night

    One of my nephews had a similar experience. He was 24 at the time. Apparently, he had been living on those energy drinks and sodas, instead of water. The Doc said his electrolytes were all out of sorts and he had very low potassium levels.

    He has since been drinking plenty of water and minding his sugar intake and actually taken to eating real food, now and again, and is doing much better.

    I hope you son gets through this and it proves to be something that simple.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    What your energy drink can do to your body - CNN

    Sorry to hear about your son. I don''t have familial experience but I do know a few people that have had problems such as arrhythmia and fitting that seem to be associated with energy drinks and/or disturbed sleeping patterns. Add in stress and a chaotic lifestyle some people will always be more liable than others to have problems.

    I can't help, but can only hope all goes well for him.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    wow magenta that must have been scary for you both. Hope he's improving now and they've figured out a cause that can be put right. Hopefully he's calmed down and thinking more rationally now too. Hugs to you both

    Aw Mag, so sorry to hear about your boy.
    Darn frightening.
    Follow Doctors orders, keep encouraging healthy eating, active living, reduce stress at all cost. Watch the silent killers such as salt, sugar and fats
    Could be a something he has had all his life that laid dormant until now.

    The human body is one great giant mystery and we are merely science experiments to our doctors.

    Thanks minks. Bit scary knowing he was 'technically dead' a couple of times.
    He went to his doctor and currently is wearing a heart monitor. We'll know more about it in a week, and what actually happened.
    Meanwhile., i rang mum and she tells me a 'heart condition' kept her dad out of ww2........first i heard about it. So it may be genetic.
