A member asked:

Can a temper outburst in someone who has heart disease (plaque lining the arterial walls) be a catalyst for a plaque rupture and consequent mi?

It can...: Sress can release adrenaline which constricts blood vessels, increase blood pressure and enhance tendency of platelets to aggregate and cause blood clots. Triggers such as these can cause a plaque to break and form a clot causing a heart attack. Yes, intense stress or rabid loss of temper can cause a heart attack.
