AmyJo Schmidt

On March 9th, 2016, I woke up to get my kids ready for school. I suddenly felt a severe burning, squeezing, unbearable crushing pain in my chest. The pain quickly moved down my left arm, up my left jaw & neck. I suspected I was having a heart attack, but yet was in denial and put a heating pad across my chest, which did nothing for the pain. I drove myself to the Emergency Room, after several tests I was told by the doctor that I was about to have a heart attack.
