Mandy Swift was just 51 when she had her first heart attack – but she didn't recognise the symptoms and didn't seek medical attention.
"I was decorating my bedroom and didn't feel right. I don't remember much but I know I had pain in my left arm starting in my shoulder and right down through my entire arm. The pain I felt in my left arm was a throbbing pain, almost like when you have a toothache, but very painful and my arm felt heavy," said the 56-year-old from Rhyl.
"I went to bed and think I must've drifted in and out of consciousness. I thought maybe I'd pulled a muscle from painting the ceiling but it was more painful than that. I vomited, but I hadn't really eaten anything, so I was just vomiting water. I think I slept on and off for about two days. I was living alone and afterwards I just carried on with my job and life as normal."
