Q: We read it's essential to get immediate medical attention at the first sign of a heart attack. It would be easier to follow this advice if I knew what to expect if I have a heart attack.A: A heart attack or myocardial infarction occurs when one of the blood vessels to the heart (coronary arteries) becomes completely blocked. Many heart attack victims have a history of chest pain (angina) that may worsen or occur more often in days before an attack. Others have ill-defined warning symptoms, or experience a heart attack suddenly, without any premonition.

Five days after suffering what his doctor called a mild heart attack Sunday, Salisbury coach Jim Berkman has only the tender area on his leg where a catheter was inserted as physical evidence of that procedure. “I feel all right,” Berkman, 52, said Friday morning from his home. “Actually, I'm a little antsy here. I'm not a guy who can sit around a whole lot. So I'm kind of getting stir-crazy right now.” The NCAA's all-time winningest coach with 395 victories, Berkman has not been allowed to return to the top-ranked Sea Gulls, who have captured nine national championships, including last year's title, under Berkman.

Q: I am a 56-year-old housewife and my doctor just told me I have diabetes.

What can I do to reduce my likelihood of having a heart attack?A: You have good reason to be concerned about the development of heart disease. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is considerably more common among diabetics than among non-diabetics; the risk is particularly high in women with diabetes.
