It's not always menopause....

There's a lot more going on than just getting a few years older and not having periods once you hit middle age. I decided to include information on heart attacks on my site and the following letter shows how this page is helping.

I just had to write you and tell you how important your website was to me. It probably saved my life. I am 46 yrs old, and felt like the pain that I was feeling in my back was just a pulled muscle or something. It would come and go, and my left arm would also just ache really bad. I figured that I had a pinched nerve also. I had read some other info online, but it didn't talk about the fact that in women, this feeling might come and go. That is exactly why I didn't take it seriously. After I woke up on New Years day, and vomited, I decided I better look into things a little more. I found your website, and read the messages that were written by women who had suffered heart attacks, it was so much like what I was experiencing, so my husband didn't even give me an option. He took me into the ER, and I find out that I had suffered a heart attack. One of my main arteries was 99% blocked, and they put in a stent. I just got home yesterday, and am still feeling weak today. But am certainly on the mend!! Thanks again to you and the wonderful women who shared their stories on your website!! It has made all the difference in the world for me!!
