    A timely reminder to all of the symptoms or warning signs of heart attack and stroke. If there's any question at all you may be experiencing them, time is of the essence. Call 911 or have someone get you to the ER immediately!

    HEART ATTACK WARNING SIGNS
    CHEST DISCOMFORT
    DISCOMFORT IN OTHER AREAS OF THE UPPER BODY
    SHORTNESS OF BREATH
    OTHER SIGNS
    may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.


    STROKE WARNING SIGNS
    If one or more of these signs is present, don't delay:
    - SUDDEN NUMBNESS OR WEAKNESS OF THE FACE, ARM OR LEG, ESPECIALLY ON ONE SIDE OF THE BODY
    - SUDDEN CONFUSION, TROUBLE SPEAKING OR UNDERSTANDING

    And one other suggestion. Doc Wong offers CPR / First Aid for motorcyclists regularly, MotoShop in South SF recently offered a course also. Consider signing up. The life you save could be someone very dear to you.

    Also very important advice!

    When a loved one (friend, family or co-worker) talks to you about your diet, habits, health as they see it they are not being jerks! They are talking to you because they care. Do not blow them off for they may be seeing just what you REFUSE to see!


    I can say that while you are having a heart attack literally dying in front of your kids (ask Dan) that SUCKS!!!!! and it is not FAIR to the kids or your spouse.

    Please eat right, work wisely, drink with a thought to your health and exercise.


    Once you have a heart attack do not believe you cannot have a second one.
