Heart attacks and blood clots

Common Questions and Answers about Heart attacks and blood clots


Avatar n tn A cardiac catheterization can shed some light on the cause of a particular heart attack, but blood clots can be dynamic - they may dissolve by the time of the catheterization. Therefore, blood clots can cause heart attacks, both in people with and without underlying clotting disorders. Information provided here is for general purposes only. Specific diagnoses and treatments can only be made by your doctor.
Avatar m tn hope this helps Exercise Lack of exercise also raises the risk of developing blood clots inside blood vessels. Studies have shown that exercise increases the body's ability to dissolve blood clots that have already formed. Recommended exercise programs consist of walking, jogging, and cycling for 45 minutes, five times a week. More heart attacks occur in the morning than at other times of the day.
Avatar n tn 07 (when I stopped getting my period) I changed an EKG and in January, March, April and May have had a blood clot each month. The odd thing is that these mos are mos that I had symptoms that I would be getting my period but of course, never got my period. I began taking lovenox in May '08 and have since started taking a 2nd injection a day but was told clotting can still occur. The last 4x these heart attacks happened due to clots were at the same time I had my menstral cycle symptoms.
Avatar n tn Yesterday he had a massive heart attack and had double by-pass surgery. In speaking with others, cumidon and heart attacks seem to be related. Could that have been the culprit?
Avatar f tn If you've had such a major medical issue, I wouldn't be so sure to just accept that these are anxiety attacks, and even if they are that they aren't physiologically based. When a doctor tells you you're just having anxiety attacks, that's often a way of saying, I don't know what's going on and and I don't want to find out. Blood clots indicate severe circulation problems, which can also make someone feel faint and like they're going to pass out and die.
Avatar f tn felt the weirdest beating in my chest..then my heart took off--I felt for it..and it raced for a full minute. I dont know what BPM it was--and I felt NO other symptoms..but I didnt think it was going to stop!! I was terrified! But not anxious before it happened. I waited..but it didnt happen again...
660660 tn?1301681308 my heart broke and it scared me like hell. Its awful to see your blood and tissue pass out like that!!!! the second one was smaller n more longish.. i cried at the sight of them. Searched online later, that periods after ivf failures almost always pass clots and large ones.
Avatar n tn With all the heart commercials on this month (Healthy Heart Awareness Month), the media have discussed several models that died of heart attacks due to starvation, including 2 sisters in another country. I thought heart attacks were a result of an interruption of blood flow due to clots, plaque... In an otherwise healthy person, how would extreme dieting cause a heart attack? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I tried to donate blood today, and everything was going alright until the flow stopped. The lady helping me said it was because my blood had clotted. She tried moving the needle around to get the flow going again, but it didn't work. They initially had a difficult time finding my vein because it was "rolling." This has also happened before. I have successfully given blood a few times, but the past few times I've tried to give, this has happened.
Avatar n tn If the numbers of platelets is too high(thrombocytosis), that can cause blood clots (thrombosis) which block blood vessels, and cause strokes and heart attacks. Thrombocytosis is of two types: primary(faulty stem cells in the bone marrow make too many platelets) or secondary.
Avatar m tn I am a 48 year old white male, and I have already had a total of 5 heart attacks (all within the last 5 tears). At first my doctoer thought it was due to my low HDL, as it has been lower that 28 for the last 5 years. But after my last attack, about 3 months ago, the doctors are now thinking that my body is trying to reject the 3 stents the have pkaced in me. This last attack was pretty serious, and we are planning to have a defibri;ator implanted later this month.

Avatar f tn They did a thorough exam on my heart and took some blood tests. One of which was to check for blood clots and it came back negative. Thank God. My heart rhythm was fast but I managed to slow it down all by myself without any drugs.
Avatar f tn Aspirin has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack and reduce the short-term risk of death among people suffering from heart attacks. There is no evidence that an aspirin is contra-indicated for hypertensive individuals having a heart attack.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am trying to do some research on blood clots and I want to get a broad range of perspectives on this topic as the questions that I am trying to find the answer to are essential to attaining a sophisticated understanding of how blood clots work. My first question is simply, how do blood clots form? What causes blood clots to form? Under the circumstances of blood clot formation, are they self-curing? Next, How can we determine if so, whether or not someone has a blood clot visually?

20856748 tn?1542613074 Thrombosis is the formation of blood clots inside the vessel or heart cavities. These clots make an obstacle to normal blood circulation. How innocent this may sound, it’s a very dangerous condition that needs to be controlled, prevented and spoken about. Raising awareness in people is a matter of saving their lives. Why do the thrombi appear in vessels?
