Never too young to ignore the chest pains no matter what an ER doctor might say. I have gone through with a coworker the path of go home take something for the muscle you pulled until when on vacation had a massive heartattack on the freeway coming home, also early 30's.

Hats off to Amy for doing this - great awareness and lifestyle change message. Would love to hear how her follow-up has been and what the Dr's say about her lifestyle changes and the impact they have had
