Heart attack in young age

Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack in young age


994817 tn?1249738278 Can I have Coronary Artery Disease, Heart Attack, or Heart Disease at such a young age? Did all of the caffeine I drank in my childhood/adolescence possibly have an effect on my heart? And if it did have an effect, is it life threatening? PLEASE, anyone who can give me advice or who goes through the same thing please let me know. Some hope and peace of mind is very much needed.
Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.
14991338 tn?1447193706 However, I do believe people greatly underestimated the age range people can have a heart attack. Many seem to think it happens around 60-70, when in fact people should start worrying about it in their 40s. Sigh.
967168 tn?1477584489 maybe maybe not? I know how quirky EKG/ECG machines are so I'm really hoping this time it's a false reading. My Primary found a new murmur and I've been so sick for about 5-6 months; not feeling right, more winded than normal, major headaches, different types of chest pain than before and ALOT more fainting spells even with my ICD.
Avatar m tn I am sure you are aware if you have a family history of anyone under the age of 50 having a heart attack it puts you in a higher risk group as well as a family history of blood clots so they should be super pro active with your treatment plan. With LVEF docs now have all types of new options to combat with including the fairly new med neuregulin that has great results from the clinical testing that i have read about so you may want to talk to your doc and see if it may work for you.

Avatar n tn You asked very good questions. My Dad died suddenly of an apparent Heart attack at age 35. I was with him when this happened and was 5 years old. We always wondered why this happened. WHY?: His parents lived well into their eighties but my dad's brother met the same fate at age 42. I say somewhere there was a bad gene that got to Dad and his brother. My dad's sisters lived also well into their eighties. It has been 50 years now and we still wonder WHY!
Avatar f tn I am also so sorry about the loss of your brother. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I agree with Michelle you should also get checked out to be on the safe side. My mother died of her first heart attack at the age of 39 and I was checked out when I was in my 20's. I too have high BP like she had. Also, I think anyone that loses a family member can take as long as they want with dealing with a death.
Avatar n tn I think the fact your stress test was fine, coupled with your very young age, puts you at very low risk of heart attack.
1187301 tn?1264772920 You've had a lot of heart trouble for such a young age. That said, it appears on the little bit you've told me you need to keep a regular checkup with a cardiologist - I have one every 6 months myself even if I have not experienced any new problems. Then I am almost 30 years older than you. The only specific comment I have is (I do not have anything on which to base advice) make sure your ICD is in good working order...
Avatar n tn im in first year university and my examinations in london last about 4 to 6 hours each! but a half an hour break in between. i have realized that the vein in my right hand has "popped" out and my hand really hurts. Its been one week and today i got very stressed out when i began to feel the same pain from my hand in my ankle vein in my right leg. does this pain have anything to do with writing? or heart diseases? how can i treat it plz plz plz!!!!
Avatar n tn Your nephew is most likely suffering from panic/ anxiety related episodes. The symptoms can range from breathlessness to rapid heart beat. In fact, in some cases, it seems as though you are suffering a heart attack! Panic attacks typically go away after 15-20 or sooner with medication such as benzodiazeines or just breathing relaxation exercises like pkdonlon alluded. The tingling sensation your nephew is experiencing is also from hyperventilating from a panic attack.
Avatar f tn It depends on what you mean by a "nervous feeling" in your chest. If it feels like your heart is fluttering, irregular, or skipping beats, then it could be related to your heart, though not in a way that is concerning for a heart attack, like your dad had. First of all, you're dad having a heart attack only increases your risk of having heart disease if he was less than 50 years old when he had heart disease.
Avatar f tn You are extremely young for developing a serious heart condition. In addition, you do not describe any significant risk factors that is history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, family history of premature heart disease. With an absence of any risk factors and your age, it is very unlikely that you suffer from a heart condition.
Avatar n tn one of my very good nurse friends told me that nowadays age is not such a huge factor in heart disease as it has been in the past because of the rising percentage of heart related problems in young people.
Avatar f tn Im just nervous about having a heart attack I know that is rare at my age. I had a normal EKG about 8 months ago, normal blood work a month ago except for cholesterol, and a full cardio workup chest xray and blood work, 3 ekgs a year ago after a little scare when my heart rate jumped up and did not want to come back down during a work out.
Avatar n tn t good. no you are not too young to have a heart attack. STRESS can cause taht in itself. please please get check out for your sake, your life may depend on it, by the way being 16 you should qualify for some state medicaid. I have also never had anyone press on my breast to see if I were having a heart attack eben if I have a pulled muscle I have never had one pressing there.
Avatar n tn High blood pressure directly increases the risk of coronary heart disease (which leads to heart attack) and stroke (or brain attack), especially along with other risk factors. High blood pressure can occur in children or adults, but is particularly prevalent in blacks, middle-aged and elderly people, obese people, heavy drinkers and women who are taking oral contraceptives. Individuals with diabetes mellitus gout or kidney disease have a higher frequency of hypertension.
1363020 tn?1277766210 s known to be hereditary. My Grandfather also died from a heart attack. Mom tells me I should Start keeping an eye on things. Should I be worried at such a young age?
19079998 tn?1472020580 Usually, I feel the pain everytime after having my meals sometimes or on times of mental stress. In kinda worried because we have family history of heart problem. Now my question is, could it be possible that at my early age I do have my angina? Thanks in advance & Godbless.
Avatar f tn he ran a plaque test and found blocage in my arteries and scared me by saying that i may be have a heart attack even though im young if not make some changes....2 days ago,at night i felt like someone was seating on my chest and could barely breath.trying take deep breaths the pain become worse and i vomited twice,it lastes about 5 minutes...could this be a heart attack like my cardiologist said that could happen?i know that this may be a silly question but i think it was...
152590 tn?1208146144 That is so sad!!! I will keep that family in my thoughts and prayers!!
Avatar m tn I was just wondering why it is you specified gay or lesbian. I can see specifying the young age in regard to a heart attack, but why the sexual preference specification? Did they like treat you differently or something like that?
Avatar m tn Without being able to review your entire history it will not be possible to give you an exact answer, but generally speaking the probability of a chest pain to be related to the heart depends on the characteristics of the pain and the risks factors of the patient (age, gender, smoking, cocaine use, family history of heart attack at young age), diabetes or high blood sugar, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Avatar m tn 200 bpm is high but a healthy heart in a young man should handle that just fine, as Jon told you. That said, you don't need to stay at 200 bpm to get effect from your exercise. Most people are not able to sustain that heavy exercise for a long time, maybe just a few minutes. I would say it's better to stay at a lower percentage of max (in your case, without knowing your resting heart rate, maybe 160-180 bpm) for half an hour or more.
Avatar m tn Your age of 30 puts you in the unlikely age range for a heart attack, but ... how young were your parents when they had their first heart attack?
