Heart athrosclerosis with limited scleroderma? in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted November 13, 2011 Hi Tootired, This happened to me too, two heart attacks in 2 years at ages, 47 and 49. I don't smoke, have good cholesterol, no family history, etc. the doctors insist it's not related, but they can't give me a good reason why it happened either. I'm on Plavix, aspirin and fish oil to help it not happen again and so far so good for 4 years. Keeping my fingers crossed and hope you get answers! Karen.
