Can stress cause a heart attack?
I had a heart attack over twelve months ago. Symptoms were: I had taken a bite out of an apple and I thought I had got it stuck as the pain was in the middle of my chest!
anyhow rushed into hospital and given drugs etc and a week later while still in I had an angiogram where your heart is on the tv monitor and they put my heart under stress with a drug to make it beat faster. He said all was fine just usual firing for my age (51)
I was told that my heart would have suffered some damage however on the echo sounder results no damage was found. So my specialist said I was lucky and he was putting the care back to my GP
I still take statins and Ramipril and Asprin and Bisoprolol. I was taking 2.5mg of Ramipril and 2.5mg Bisoprolol. But I was going dizzy and my blood pressure was low. So the dr has changed my tablets to 1.25mg for Ramipril and Bisoprolol.
Now my blood pressure is great around 120/80 give or take.
My weight is around 12 stone and I am 5'5" in height.
Prior to my heart attack, my wife was diagnosed with cancer so I really went all out with superfoods etc. cacao, berries, pumpkin, seeds you name it, I blended the lot in a Nutra-bullet even took spirulina. and followed the paleo diet. This was for a good 2 years before my heart attack.
So you can imagine I was really upset following this type of lifestyle and still had a heart attack.
I am one who wants to stay healthy and eat healthily. So I am really dismayed.
The dr or should I say the specialist said It could have been a blood clot that had been dissolved now.
