Tami Roman Suffers Mild Heart Attack

  • Pin It

Tami was hospitalized for suffering a mild heart attack. Mild or not a heart attack is very serious. Her publicist, released this statement: Last night, Tami Roman was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a medical emergency. She has since been released and would like to let her fans and supporters know she is doing fine and looks forward to resuming her scheduled engagements. She will also be back on Twitter communicating with her followers shortly.

Tami tweeted she wasn’t well early this morning
Not feeling so well but I hope u enjoyed the episode. Gonna try to catch a re-run and collect my thoughts to blog. Headed to bed early :)

Apparently she wasn’t lying:
Thx 2every1 for the get well wishes. Never thought I’d have a mild heart attack at 41. God has a way of bringing things into perspective. Finally going home 2my kids-heart meds and all

I’m off twitter 4 awhile, no stress recovery, but I appreciate ALL the positive energy & the negative 1’s-get a life-I sure appreciate mine.

Tami, a heart attack is a wake up call, change your diet, stop stressing and fighting, remain calm and most importantly, your creator, God, needs you to be a witness for Him.

Relax and get well soon x

Black women suffer rates of heart disease that are twice as high as those among white women. Some of the factors that contribute to this disparity include higher rates of overweight and obesity, higher rates of elevated cholesterol levels and high blood pressure and limited awareness of our elevated risks. In addition to having high heart disease rates, Black women die from heart disease more often than all other Americans.

2008 stats

Typical heart attack symptoms include:

  • Uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
  • Pain that spreads to the shoulders, neck or arms.
  • Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea or shortness of breath.

Women are more likely to experience other, less common warning signs of heart attack including:

Atypical chest pain (pain that is sharp and temporary),

  • Stomach, back, or arm pain
  • Nausea or dizziness (without chest pain).
  • Shortness of breath and difficulty breathing (without chest pain).
  • Unexplained anxiety, weakness or fatigue.
  • Palpitations, cold sweat or paleness.

Black women need to be aggressive in seeking attention for heart disease symptoms and concerns by taking the initiative in establishing communications with their doctor: This can improve the chances of receiving appropriate treatment. Every year about 785,000 Americans have a first coronary attack. Another 470,000 who have already had one or more coronary attacks have another attack.

    While u are recovering get help with your anger. It’s not good for the heart and u are such an angry lil bird.Personally I don’t like u or Evelyn,who is going to be the next one suffering a heart attack.u guys are classless ought to be ashamed of yourselves because u have almost grown daughters and this is how u present yourselves as role models.

    Hi Tami, My prayers are with you always. Please take care of yourself. Keep GOD first & foremost in your life. Your children need you around. Calm down on the show…I want to see you on there for as last as it may last. May GOD continue to bless you.

  • Haknight

    She needs to stop arguing so much with everyone, that might just help her decompress, she keeps too much crap going, no wonder her blood pressure is high.  Anyway, hopefully, she’ll do what she needs to do to take care of herself.

  • Maybe now she will stop running her mouth so much and sit the hell down somewhere when drama pops off… Hope she feels better but damn I coulda told you somethin like this was coming life is too short to be THAT MAD AT EVERY DAMN BODY

  • Octaviajoyce

    Wishing you well, Tami!  BW ain’t BW without you, but more importantly, we love you enough to want you well for your beautiful daughters!

  • Phenomenal0218

    This is a way of god showing you to cool it and not to take everything for granted in life. I hate that this happened to you but you gotta sit down and breath and think things through. Stop behaving so irrationally about the smallest things. People will always have something to say about you whether if you’re here or dead and gone. Look out for Tammi and think about your children because they love you and so do we in-spite of your flaws.
