I just recently learned that the American Heart Association is stating chest pain may be an indicator of cocaine use in young people. As one of the young people myself, I’m entirely miffed. A lot of doctors are now more likely to assume that a young person is on something rather than be truly experiencing a heart attack. This new medical statement is only going to encourage that assumption.
Just cause a skinny, nervous guy with an itchy nose shows up in the ER with chest pains, does not necessarily mean he’s on the white stuff.
Have you ever had a bad experience with an emergency room doctor? Or been held up by someone else’s assumptions?
