Heart attack symptoms don’t always present in the same way for everyone. Some may experience pain in their jaw, cold sweats, nausea, or shortness of breath. While others, like 50-year-old Daniel Bledsaw, may simply not “feel like themselves.”
It was Fourth of July weekend. Daniel was traveling back home to Portage, Michigan after visiting family in Madison, Wisconsin. Shortly after crossing the Michigan border, Daniel’s wife Colleen noticed that he was pushing down and letting up on the gas pedal more often than normal. She thought it was strange and suggested that he pull the car over and take a few moments to stretch his legs. Daniel parked the car on the side of the road and began walking back and forth on the shoulder. On his third pass back toward the car, he collapsed.
