How long will a heart attack last ?

A: until it stops If you truly go into a heat attack it will last until you die from it. Sounds like you have restricted flow. you need to get into the doc before your heart is damaged from the lack of blood. Symptoms of a heart attack include denial. It''s better to be alive and have some cost than to be dead. Can you call a consulting nurse and get more details? She may be able to give you some more immediate information about what is important. Did you know that you can have a major heart attack with out knowing it? I did.... then the next one came along and I was in a coma for 3 days. My last one (just last week) and I had 3 stents and had...

Acid reflux or something Tension or stress can cause all kinds of problems. Exercise reduces stress. If you don''t want to see a doctor yet, I would try working out.

After a heart attack?

A: I gotta chime in here. I had an Acute Myocardial Infarction when I was 43. I just turned 48 last month. I smoked for 20 plus years. I also worked out religiously and ate like a dietitian would advise for my whole adult life. After you have a life changing incident like that you often become obsessed with info gathering. Oh, let me just say right now to all those who find it hard to quit smoking, when you wake up in crital care with a pain in your chest like a g.d. grenade just went off, you''ll never pick up another cigarette again, or you''re a dumb *** continuing to smoke who may not deserve a second chance. I was at work when it happened. Luckily, I was rushed to a Category One Trauma hospital. I went into ventricular fibrillation in the E.R. They shocked me back. Then I went into vent....


Hey! I have a few questions concerning heart attackS?

A: Assuming that by heart attack, you mean myocardial infarction: 1. Yes, but rare. At that age, due to congenital defect(s) of coronary arteries. 2. That depends on amount of artery blockage and cardiac tissue damaged, length of time before definitive medical treatment, and prior condition of heart (was there damage from a previous infarction, etc.). If the "attack" causes cardiac arrest, chances are decreased. 3. Both stress and genetic factors can predispose one to an M.I. They are more common in older adults but an 18 year old can definitely have a heart attack. Each year, around 600,000 people in the US have a

heart attack ?

A: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI or MI), commonly known as a heart attack, is a disease state that occurs when the blood supply to a part of the heart is interrupted. The resulting ischemia or oxygen shortage causes damage and potential death of heart tissue. It is a medical emergency, and the leading cause of death for both men and women all over the world.[1] Important risk factors are a previous history of vascular disease such as atherosclerotic coronary heart disease and/or angina, a previous heart attack or stroke, any previous episodes of abnormal heart rhythms or syncope, older age-...


OK, this might sound strange but can you stop a heart attack by just breathing deeply?

A: Sounds like you had a panic attack. I used to get them all the time and the same thing happened to me. The tingling is due to your circulation being off b/c of your breathing. No worries. No, you can not stop a heart attack by breathing. Panic attacks can manifest themselves in a lot of ways and so tingling arms and legs is nothing new. Your EKG was fine but maybe you should see a Dr, not an ER Dr and may be have what they call a 24 hour monitor test. Its kind of like having an EKG strap to your chest for 24 hours and see if they can catch it on the test. Maybe a stress test or an echo cardiogram to check out your heart valves. Sometimes valves slam shut to quick and...
