Lilymax Posted March 1, 2012 Share Posted March 1, 2012 The prayer request shared here earlier for the 32-year-old who had the massive stroke was the SIXTH person under 40 that I've heard about in the past year who has had a serious coronary event! :ohmy: Three were men right around 40 who had sudden heart attacks--one died, the other two lived, thankfully. The other two are women in their late 30's who also suffered serious strokes. They both have a seriously long recovery ahead. Only one of those (one of the men) was a morbidly obese, heavy drinking, smoking kind of guy that you'd sort of expect to have some kind of serious health problem. The others, though, are all thinner and at least by appearances, quite healthy. Their events were very surprising to me. I'm 43. My husband is 45. My sister is 46. I am obese, have PCOS, and an unspecified autoimmune disorder. Those all put me at higher risk for such problems. Thankfully, though, when I had my cholesterol checked last, all the levels were great. Still, I find this so scary. Has anyone else noticed that it seems more early-middle-aged people are having strokes and heart attacks? Even those who appear to be healthy and exercise regularly?
