Poor (former) Bucs Coach Bruce Arians! He had a serious health scare last month.

He shared what he went through with Ira Kaufman of JoeBucsFan.com.

Arians explained that on October 8th, he felt severe chest pains. “On the night before the Atlanta game, we had a house full of people,” Arians told Kaufman. “We ate and I got these pains way up here, like two knives going in. The more I tried to take a breath, the worse it got. I took some TUMS, thinking it was indigestion, but it just got worse. I called [my wife] back to the bedroom and said I can’t shake this pain. We called 911 and they put me on a stretcher to Tampa General.”

Doctors were afraid Arians had experienced a heart attack. They found out he had inflammation of the heart muscle, myocarditis.

He is on the mend, and his heart scans and other diagnostics revealed no fluid on his heart, no damage to his heart, and no blockages. Thank goodness! Nothing scarier, from a health standpoint, then afraid that you might be having a heart attack.
