Would it be bad enough to accidentally tear your buns to shreds “in a moment of too enthusiastic gardening” during quarantine, but then suffer from a heart attack? Queen guitarist Brian May had a hell of a month from a health standpoint, and that doesn’t even account for a pandemic. According to a video posted on Instagram in May, the musician’s gardening disaster a few weeks ago inadvertently concealed an extremely painful pinched sciatic nerve affecting his leg. Then, while May was working with doctors to locate the source of his distress, he also suddenly had a “small heart attack”.
“I thought I was a very healthy guy,” said the musician. “But I turned out to have three arteries that were congested and could block my heart’s blood supply. May has received three stents and is fully recovered, but warns fans to be diligent about their heart health. “I thought I was a very healthy guy,” he wonders. “Everyone says,” You have high blood pressure. You have an excellent heart rate. “And I stay in shape, I ride a bike, I eat good food. “
“I could have died from this, from the blockages that existed,” May concluded. “Anyway, I didn’t die, I went out. and I would have been full of beans, without the leg. I just got to the point where the leg is a little habitable. You can watch his full video below.
