Heart Disease, Not MS

MS is such a bizarre disease which affects the body in many different ways because it disrupts the central nervous system (CNS) which is the headquarters of the body’s electrical system.  Sabotage the electrical impulses traveling to and from the brain and it’s hard to predict just what might happen.

Let me tell you about two MS friends.  Each had a heart attack, but only one had a positive outcome.  The first friend, Laura, shares that she had a heart attack and was fortunate enough to get help quickly and suffer little heart damage.  She says, “dumb luck and listening to the voices that told me something was wrong sent me to the ER before my heart attack happened and it occurred in the hospital while I was already hooked up to nitroglycerin.”
