|My father is 50 years old. He had a stroke and a massive "widow-maker" heart attack about a year and a half ago. Apparently his blood pressure spiked (causing the stroke) and his main arteries were totally blocked. They gave him surgery in the ER, put stents in his heart, and put him on several medications. He is now in a wheelchair, due to the stroke, and has been seemingly okay all this time. However, I just found out that he's been having "mild" chest pains every few days or so, and he is the type of person who ABSOLUTELY REFUSES to see a doctor. He is still taking his meds and is eating (mostly) healthy, but I'm scared he may have another heart attack in the near future. What could be causing his chest pains? Is it Angina? Or a lack of blood flow? (due to rare use of legs)? Or are they serious warning signs? Please help, because he wont see a doctor at this moment.|

At this age if the heart attack and stroke has affected your father it is very important that your father should be in continuous contact of any good cardiologist. You should get one ECG done to know the reason of frequent chest pain. This could be warning sign of next attack so please not take it lightly.
