Tell Us Your Story:

I was watching a football game when I started to get sharp back pains, as they day went on the pain intensified and into the night I can monk her take the back pain, thinking they were muscle spasms I took pain medication and still no relieve, so I got up went to the ER with major mid back pain.

When I got there I told them I was having tightening in my chest so I could been faster, after sitting in the ER for 2hrs the ER doc decided on a ctscan and found the dissection I was immediately airlifted to a cardiac hospital, the cardiac doctors have decided to treat it medically and not opt for surgery.

I was in ICU for 3days to get my blood pressure and heart rate under control, I just came home today. I’m totally lost on now what? Monitor my blood pressure taking two different blood pressure medication. Any tips are welcome thank you
