Tell Us Your Story:

While driving for work, I felt a pop in my chest and then an immediate sharp pain in my back. My heart started to beat rapidly and I started sweating as I pulled over on side of expressway.

The pain in my back got so bad I was hunched over steering wheel as I called 911.

The ambulance raced me to emergency dept. where I was sent for CT scan; within an hr I was on the operating table.
